ARK Burlington Danes 2 – Fulham College Boys’ School 2
A tense first match brought a tense first point of the season for FCBS. Some very smart play around the BDA penalty area allowed Tyrell to break free and slot the ball past the keeper to make it 1 - 0 in the first half. As both teams traded chances, it was BDA who took theirs, scoring two goals in quick succession to take a 2-1 lead and leave FCBS shell shocked. With BDA on top, a quick counter attack allowed Tyrell to double his tally and make it 2-2 before half time. Despite lots of chances in the second half, both defences held out and the game finished 2-2.

Hammersmith Academy 1 – Fulham College Boys’ School 2
FCBS started the game very strong, creating chance after chance but, unfortunately, not being able to take any of them. Mid way through the first half and with their only chance of the game, Hammersmith Academy took a shock 1-0 lead. After the game restarted, FCBS continued their push for the equaliser and spent the rest of the half camped inside the Hammersmith area. A shot by Alex, with a big touch from the goalkeeper, made it 1-1. As FCBS continued, a good finish from Brooklyn brought the winner.
