Under-18s record impressive Swansea win

18 November 2013

City Under-18s claimed all three points thanks to goals from Jordan Shipley and Courtney Baker-Richardson...

Coventry City Under-18s secured a terrific victory over Swansea City at the Alan Higgs Centre on Saturday.

After the 2-0 FA Youth Cup defeat against Crewe Alexandra on Saturday, Academy Manager Gregor Rioch had stressed the importance of seeing a response from his side.

The Sky Blues always looked in control of the affair against the Welsh side with Courtney Baker-Richardson going close in the first half.

City were rewarded for their dominance early on in the second half as Jordan Shipley put the Sky Blues ahead in the 48th minute.

A terrific cross-field ball from Cian Harries found Shipley in space just outside the area and he was able to squeeze his shot past the keeper.

City continued to dominate proceedings and wrapped up the game late on after neat work down the left from George Thomas saw Baker-Richardson head home at the back-post.
