Y11 School League Football Championship

Congratulations to our Year 11 team with an inspiring victory in the 2017/18 Schools League Championship campaign.

I say inspiring due to the fact 5 key players were out of the starting 11 line up due to injury, illness and understandable examination preparation commitments. However, FCBS with strength and depth throughout our year groups made a bold, nevertheless positive change to our starting 11.
Eagerly accepting their opportunities at left back, Hosam Y9 was introduced to the team alongside Oliver Y9 playing Centre forward, given the small task of ‘filling the boots’ of leading scorer Liam  with Kai Y10 playing a major role in mid-field.
All 3 debutants played a near flawless match looking as though they play week in and week out with the Y11 squad.

West London Free School   0
Fulham College Boys           6

Off to a blistering flying start Oskar opened the scoring with a surging run and stylish finish within the initial 2 min of the match setting the standard.
Oliver found early success providing a gift of a goal to Yuusuf  shortly after.
A very busy and industrious Ollie proved a genuine headache for the WLFS defence for the entire game with well timed arched/slanted runs keeping himself onside, creating chaos and mayhem for the opposition.
Troy contributed twice before the half, the first waltzing his way through 2 players and neatly finishing, tucking the ball away to the keepers left.
The second a thunderous free kick from 20yds leaving a stranded goalkeeper.

With the game pretty much beyond reach of our opponents (4-0 at half time) we approached the second half with a play safe attitude, keeping the ball without any immediate eager moves to drive forward, we just needed to exercise patience and control.
Proving frustrating for WLFS and preying on any mistakes, Kai took advantage of a loose ball deep within WLFS's area driving home our 5th.
Anas's re-introduction to the team added his name to the score sheet late on to seal a well-deserved 6-0 victory.

Well played by all!!
