Chelsea U18s continued their unbeaten run in all competitions to 23 matches having beaten West Ham 5-1, and this means we are southern champions with more wins, more clean sheets and more points than last term.
The title is a fourth successive southern title for the Blues and the win at West Ham recorded a 15th win in a row for Jody morris’ men to claim the trophy with two games to spare.
Billy Gilmour’s early penalty opened the scoring inside 10 minutes before Charlie Brown bagged a brace and Tino Anjorin slotted into the bottom corner to send us in 4-0 up at the interval.
Conor Gallagher impressed again in midfield and extended the lead before our record of one goal conceded in 10 games was dented as Bernardo Rosa buried a free-kick beyond Karlo Ziger.
Chelsea U18s have been terrific this season and are to play a record seventh successive FA Youth Cup final.
Following our final two southern fixtures against Tottenham and Arsenal, we will take on Manchester United in the national final after the Reds were also crowned regional winners.
