Southampton Under-18s suffered a 3-0 defeat away at Liverpool in their final group match of the Under-18 Premier League Cup.

Paul Hardyman’s side fell victim to a Paul Glatzel hat-trick, as the Reds ensued they would finish at the top of the standings.

Adam Parkes was forced into a couple of good saves in the first half, but there was little between the sides for much of the opening 45 minutes.

However, just as it looked like Saints would make it into the break at 0-0, a Liverpool counter-attack in the 43rd minute ended with Dan Bartlett committing a foul in the area, with Glatzel finishing from the spot.

After the break, Saints posed more of a threat, with Kornelius Hansen missing a couple of chances to level the game.

Hopes of a comeback were ended, though, when Liverpool doubled their lead with 20 minutes remaining, Glatzel converting with a low finish from 15 yards.

Liverpool then wrapped things up in the 85th minute, as Remi Savage crossed for Glatzel to complete his hat-rick from close range.
