Fulham have been crowned Under-18 Premier League South Champions for the 2019/20 season.

The young Whites found themselves top of the pile after the curtailment of the season, three points ahead of second place West Ham United.

All clubs voted on a Points Per Game (PPG) solution, which grants Fulham a third U18 league title in nine years.

The side performed to a high level consistently and strong performances were rewarded, with a number of players making the leap up to Under-23 football.

Unfortunately, the National Play-Off will not be going ahead as planned.

Everybody at Fulham Football club would like to congratulate the staff and players for this brilliant achievement.

On his sides' title win, Manager Steve Wigley said: "I’m pleased for the boys because when you only lose one game in 17 you’ve achieved something.

"The disappointing aspect of it is that we still had five games to go and I would loved to have seen how we played in those games because that’s when the pressure is on.

"It’s great for the boys though, they had a great season and it’s an amazing achievement.

"Of course we would have liked the opportunity to play Manchester City in the National Play-Off. We’d be more than happy to drive up to Manchester but the decision has been made."
