The Year 7 football team drew Royal Albert and Alexander away in the 2nd round of the East Surrey Cup. As we were due to play this school in a league match the encounter was used as a double header.
The Beacon boys started well, passing the ball around at pace and closing the opponents down quickly. A superb corner taken by left back Jamie Anear saw the RAAS keeper save from a Sonny Davies shot, the ball falling to a rushing on Luis Ayres, who calmly slotting it into the back of the net. Both teams enjoyed solid spells of possession and centre back Jack Draper marshalled the Beacon defence well to ensure a clean sheet. The second goal came from another corner; Luis Ayres involved again assisting a very well timed Jacob Evans header, which was driven hard past a helpless keeper. Three points and a safe passage into the next round of the East Surrey Cup was the reward for a great performance on a chilly February afternoon.
Well done to all players. Thank you to all parents who came to watch to show their support.
Mr D Harris, Year 11 Lead
