Warwick away 12/12/18
The Beacon produced their best performance of the season so far with a 1-1 draw away against a strong Warwick side. Beacon were aggressive and on the front foot for the majority of the match and passed the ball out well from the back. Despite falling a goal behind just after half-time against the run of play, the boys rallied and pulled one back. Despite chances to win it late on the game finished as a draw. Special mentions to Thiago, Luca and goal scorer Sonny, but man of the match went to centre midfield Joe for his work rate and calmness on the ball.

Beacon 4 Warwick 2
Another convincing victory for the Year 10 boys football team this evening. The team were missing a lot of key players and there was immense pressure from the boys to perform. The game was tight as every time Beacon took a convincing lead, Warwick came back with a goal. It took more goals from Will, Josh and Jack to keep them at bay with some fantastic strikes, along with an extremely rare goal from a corner! We have had an amazing start to the season and long may it continue in the New Year. Once again thank you to our amazing parent fan base that are always evident at games. Happy Christmas to all when it comes.
The Beacon go marching into the 3rd Round!
The Beacon year 8 football team travelled away to Therfield School to play the second round of the County Cup. The game had particular significance as this was against Mr Batchelor’s, Ms Marrill and Mrs Rennie’s old school!
Both teams seemed a little on edge to start with as both looked for long balls into the strikers. It wasn’t long before The Beacon settled and started their passing game which has served them very well all season. Thompson and Tully went on mazy runs to show that we had another attacking dynamic to our play but both shots were saved by the Therfield goalkeeper. After the 20 minute mark, McNiff had a long range shot that deflected into the bottom corner. The Beacon took this well deserved 1-0 lead into half time.
The second half Therfield started strongly as they searched for an equaliser. The Beacon did well to nullify any attacks and Brill (in goal) kept our boys calm as he played Ederson style passes out the back to keep our team calm and start our attacks. He did not have many saves to make but was instrumental in setting the tone of our performance. The Beacon rode the mini storm of Therfield pressure, then started to put pressure on Therfield to make the lead more secure. The Therfield goalkeeper made superb saves from Smith, Tully, Thompson and Davies and it was beginning to look like a nervous ending. That was until a defensive clearance was made to Reader-Wells who saw the keeper off his line and struck the ball into the top corner. A great goal to put the game beyond Therfield.
The final score: Therfield 0-2 The Beacon
Thank you to Therfield for hosting and their excellent performance. Thank you also to The Beacon parents for their support.
The year 7 football team performed really well at the recent 5-aside tournament, playing some really nice football. The boys ended up winning 1 game and losing the other 4 but all the games were extremely close only being separated by a single goal.

Beacon 1 - Oxted 0
The Beacon boys were in action again tonight away at Oxted school. The game was extremely physical, and there were a lot of tackles going in. The surface was slippery and both teams were finding it difficult to play football. Some casual play from their winger resulted in Callum stealing the ball and sticking it into the bottom corner. Beacon as always played with pride and demonstrated fantastic sportsmanship on the pitch. Another win for the boys and another proud Mr Tyson. Come on Beacon!

A very cold evening for netball so we retreated indoors at De Stafford. First game was the year 8’s who dominated in all quarters and game out victorious with an amazing win of 19-2. Well done to player of the match Lucy. Secondly, the year 9’s played and it was a very close call in every quarter. Final score was 8-10. Well done to player of the match Katie.

Beacon 3 - Richard Challoner 4
The Beacon Year 10 football team were involved in a tough fixture this week against Richard Challoner School. They are the defending champions and we knew we were in for a difficult game. We started brightly, moving the ball and putting pressure on them when they were in possession. They scored a fantastic goal that was an absolute rocket from distance into the top corner. This did not dampen Beacon spirits as some tireless work from Will up front, got us a goal to make it even. The exact same set of circumstances happened for both teams, and a goal either side (another one from Will) left it at 2-2 at half time. Second half we created chance after chance but just could not find the back of the net. We were looking tired and we switched off for 3 minutes, finding ourselves 4-2 down from two quick fire goals. Sam then smashed one into the roof of the net to make it 4-3 with 5 minutes to go. We pushed and pushed but could not get an equaliser so sadly did not come out on top this time. Special mentions go to Joe and Reuben for an outstanding defensive display, and the man of the match goes to Will for 2 goals and tireless work up front hassling their two centre backs. We learn from this game and move on to our next fixture. Credit to The Beacon boys for the level of control and respect they showed against difficult opposition.
The Beacon U12 Girls’ football team welcomed Carshalton Girls School for a ‘double header’ league and cup match. The weather was bleak but the girls looked energised and with a steady first half that ended 0-0, the girls came out fighting in the 2nd half and with 3 super goals from Lacey, Honey and Jess, the Beacon won 3-1.
Lacey was awarded player of the match!

Beacon 3 vs Reigate 0
The Beacon Year 10 football team were in action this week, and had a tough fixture against an always good Reigate School team. The match started at a seriously fast pace with Beacon getting the ball down and moving it quickly around the pitch. We created some really good chances but couldn’t capitalize. Our midfield quartet that consisted of Johnny, Jake, Callum and Tom, were really stretching the Reigate midfielders. It took Captain Tom to break the deadlock with a sweetly struck volley that hit the cross bar, that he followed up with a header into the bottom corner. Half time 1-0. Some more hard work in the second half resulted in two well worked goals from Will and Jack to complete an outstanding performance. Our defenders looked solid from the start and we were battling all over the pitch. One of this teams best performances since they joined Beacon and I left that pitch extremely proud (as always). Thank you yet again to our amazing parents and families for their support. Come on Beacon!
The Year 8 football team played a league match against Reigate School. The game was on a sand based astroturf under floodlights which seemed to suit The Beacon style of play, which is short passing and moving. The boys started brightly, keeping the ball extremely well and switching the play to create attacks from wide areas. The Beacon created some excellent opportunities with Thompson being the stand out player of the first half with his quick feet and excellent passing skills. It was McNiff who gave The Beacon the lead midway through the first half, rocketing a shot into the top corner.
After the interval The Beacon left off where they started by putting together some slick passing moves. Evans, McNiff and Smith combined several times down the right hand side to cause some problems to the Reigate defence. It was combination that Taylor managed to glance a cross by Evans to make it 2-0; an excellent team goal.
After a few fantastic saves from the Reigate goalkeeper, Thompson capped a Man of the Match performance with a superb finish from 18 yards to make it 3-0. This is how the game ended.
Reigate 0 -3 The Beacon
Men of the Match: Smith and Thompson
Thank you to Reigate for officiating and hosting!
On Tuesday 13th November The Beacon went to RAAS to compete in the Boys District Cross Country competition. Students were selected from year 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11. Fortunately the weather was kind as it was a glorious sunny afternoon; perfect conditions for running.
The year 7's took part in the first race with over 90 runners from other schools across the borough. There was a sense of nervousness of what to expect but the boys did The Beacon proud by running strong races. The stand out performer was Daniel who finished 16th.
The year 8's had a slightly longer distance to travel with two students having the advantage of running the course last year as a year 7. Again the boys ran well with Jamie finishing 23rd and Alfie finishing 11th.
The year 9 trio of Jack, Theo and Ollie had a game plan of all running together to try to push each other through the race to finish as high as possible. The boys paced themselves well at the start as they gained a strong mid-place position as they went up the hill. As the first runner approached the finish line, Ollie appeared not far behind, finishing the race really strongly (6th). Jack was only a few seconds behind him (8th) with Theo only a few seconds behind that (13th). The game plan worked, with it being a great performance from the year 9 boys.
Finally the year 10 and 11 race got underway. Tom and Reuben ran together in a strong field to come 22nd and 23rd. The stand out performance of the day was Owen who ran within this strong field to finish 3rd and take the bronze medal.
A huge congratulations to all runners who did The Beacon proud. Thank you to RAAS for organising such a fantastic event.
Owen (3rd) Year 11
Ollie (6th) Year 9
Jack (8th) Year 9
Alfie (11th) Year 8
The Beacon Year 8 football team played a league match away at Oakwood. It was touch and go to whether the game was to go ahead due to a heavy downpour but much to the boys delight, it did.
Midway through the first half, The Beacon found their feet, putting together some wonderful passing moves. McNiff in particular was a threat down the left hand side. It wasn’t long before Thompson gave The Beacon the lead with a lovely passing move and accurate finish. Ayres grabbed a second after heading into the far corner with Davies adding another after a well worked Beacon move and Tully assist.
The second half began similar to the first with the Beacon switching the play well to create goal scoring opportunities. McNiff rounded off his MOM performance with a great finish to put the game beyond Oakwood. The game finished:
Oakwood 0-4 The Beacon
A huge thank you to Oakwood for hosting, The Beacon parents for their support and also two Oakwood year 11 students who were excellent linesmen.

Beacon 2 vs St Philomenas 3
The Year 7 girls played a fantastic game away at St Philomenas. They worked extremely hard and played some really attractive football. We hit the bar and the post but could not overturn the 3-2 score line. Very proud of the effort and hard work the girls demonstrated in their performance.

The Beacon drew Warlingham in the first round of the District Cup. The game started evenly as both teams traded attacking blows. Taylor had a couple of attempts at goal to test the keeper before Warlingham played a long ball over the top to then go 1-0 up.
A change of team shape at half time and the boys started to launch attack after attack. The Beacon were camped in the oppositions half as they searched for an equaliser. Brill had a stinging shot before Davies had a great long range effort. With 5 minutes to go, a long clearance was met by the Warlingham striker who was brought down in the penalty area. The penalty was converted to make it 2-0.
A fantastic second half performance from The Beacon who did everything but score!
Final Score: Warlingham 2-0 The Beacon
MOM: James Measures
Thank you to Warlingham for hosting the game and The Beacon parents for their support.
