SUNDERLAND weren’t at their best but did enough to gain their first win of the season against Fulham at the Academy.

The Black Cats youngsters took their chances well against a powerful London side after a goalless first half.

Ryan Noble hammered home from close range two minutes after the interval, and big Aussie Matthew Fletcher got the second a minute from time. Sunderland coach Kevin Ball said: “We scored two great goals and defended well.”

SUNDERLAND UNDER-18s (4-4-2): Misiewicz; Bagnall, Lamb, Egan, Adams, Mitchell, Wilson, Lynch (McEleny 63), Elliott, Noble, Fraser.
