Well done to our Year 10 football team who won their match against The West London Free School last month with a 4-3 victory.
After a long lay off over Christmas it was great to see our boys back in action this new year.
With a fresh new look to the squad and an eager anticipation to play, it didn’t take long for FCBS to open the scoring with a good strike from distance from debutante Liam Humbles.
Playing especially well in midfield, our boys appeared comfortable with their work pushing forward and looking dangerous. Again, they were rewarded for their efforts within five minutes of our opening strike,
Tariq Mugenyi added his name to the score sheet with a well taken goal for a 2-0 lead.
Respect to WLFS as they were also playing a good game, they took their chances scoring twice in as many minutes, catching us on the back foot, scoring from close range with two similar goals to level the score.
With the wind in the their sails, WLFS went on to take the lead 3-2 with a fine headed goal less than five minutes remaining in the first half.
This was a valuable lesson and a timely check for the squad to witness how rapidly a good thing could turn sour in so little time.
Fortunately, Captain Oliver Davey re-balanced the scoreline just seconds before the half time whistle leaving the score at 3-3
In the second half of the match, FCBS stepped out looking good, playing with confidence, patience, caution and a fair helping of flair recognising their opponents cannot win the game without the ball.
This was executed exceptionally well as our goalkeeper was effectively redundant for the entire second half.
This well crafted team effort, forced WLFS to play chase ball and inevitably led to something special.
A fantastic build up and equally impressive finish from Dylan Stuart reclaimed the lead and ended the game 4-3 to Fulham College Boys’ School.
Well done to all the players on the day, it was a truly fabulous game!
