Years 12/13 Boys' Football
The Sixth Form team start the season by winning both their National Schools Cup matches to progress to the third round.
The Sixth Form team has started the season very well winning both their National Schools Cup matches to progress to the third round. The first was played at Surrey Sports Park against Royal Grammar School, Guildford. On an extremely large pitch and considering it was the first time the boys had played together, they put in a strong performance where an early goal from James Beere was enough to see them through with a victory. There were excellent performances from George Boughton in goal and Steve Lee and Sam Row at the back.
In the following round the team were again drawn away to a traditionally strong Sixth Form at Howard of Effingham School. The boys withstood early pressure to hit back with a firm header from captain Steve Lee, before then having to cope with him going off with damaged ankle ligaments shortly after. Leading 1-0 at half-time the team took the game to the opposition and reaped the benefits with two goals in quick succession from Dillan Patel. Rory Lewis was outstanding in midfield with another sterling performance from the back four and in particular from James Beere and Sam Row.
The team await the result of the game between St John the Baptist (Woking) and Chelsea Academy (West London) before knowing who they are away to in Round 3.
