Striker Joe Dodoo maintained his rich vein of personal form with the winning goal, as the young Foxes came from behind to make it seven points from a possible nine so far this term.
After seeing the Railwaymen take a first-half lead, City hit back before half-time through Louis Greenway-Tambini’s third goal of the season.
And when Dodoo weighed in with his fifth in three games during the second period, it was enough to secure three points and continue the Youth Team’s impressive start to the campaign.
“It was always going to be a difficult game against Crewe, whose reputation for producing excellent technical footballers precedes them,” said Academy Director Jon Rudkin.
“The game became a little scrappy near the end, but we were generally pleased with the way the boys passed the ball and we introduced two 15-year-olds during the second half, which will have been of huge benefit to their education within the Academy.
“There were a lot of big plusses to come out of the game and we were pleased to take three points from a very difficult away trip.”
Just like the senior squad, the Under-18s now have a two-week break from fixtures during international fortnight.
“It gives us the chance to assess our first few games, check fitness levels and essentially do an audit of where we are at present and look forward to next phase of the season,” Jon added.
