April 13, 2018

A brace of free kicks from Keanan Bennetts consigned Chelsea’s Development Squad to defeat in their final home fixture of the season against Tottenham Hotspur on Friday night. The Blues were disappointing in front of almost 3,000 fans at Stamford Bridge, struggling to break down a Spurs team that had been reduced to ten men before half time when Christian Maghoma was dismissed for a pair of fouls on Daishawn…


FA Youth Cup: Chelsea 4-0 Birmingham City (7-0 agg)

April 10, 2018

The FA Youth Cup starts in August of every season, invites more than 700 clubs from across the lands to enter, and in the end Chelsea reach the Final.

Chelsea moved within one point of a fourth consecutive Under-18 Premier League South title on Saturday morning as they avenged their sole defeat this season in beating Southampton 4-0 at Cobham.

Tariq Uwakwe…

April 4, 2018

Chelsea are well on their way to a seventh straight FA Youth Cup Final after recording a very comfortable 3-0 win at Birmingham City in Wednesday night’s Semi Final First Leg at St Andrew’s. Tariq Uwakwe, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Charlie Brown scored to give the away team a firm hand on proceedings heading into the return leg in SW6 six nights from tonight, and they were scarcely in trouble of…
