An excellent start to 2020 for Leicester City's Under-18s continued on Saturday with a comfortable 5-1 success over Swansea City at Belvoir Drive.

The young Foxes have now won four of their six matches since the turn of the year and have climbed up to fourth place in the U18 Premier League South standings.

Following a 5-2 victory at Arsenal last time out, City's youngsters welcomed the Swans to the Club's training ground on Saturday looking to extend their improved form.

They got off to the perfect start as Terell Pennant netted after just six minutes and, while Leicester would have to wait until after the break, they would add another four goals to their tally.

A Will Russ penalty doubled their advantage in the 48th minute before Pennant's second goal of the day, and while Joel Cotterill did get one back for Swansea, City's goalscoring feats continued.

Shane Flynn's 80th-minute strike made it 4-1 to the home side before a Jake Thomas own goal in the final minute completed the scoring for a rampant Leicester side at Belvoir Drive.

As a result, the young Foxes climb to fourth in the south tier of the U18 Premier League structure, seven points behind West Ham United in third place, while leaders Fulham hold a 10-point advantage.

City's Under-18s could close the gap to the Hammers even more when they visit the East London outfit at Little Heath Sports Centre on Saturday 7 March (12pm GMT kick-off).
