Past Fixtures & Results
Beacon started their Surrey Cup campaign yesterday with an away match at Three Rivers Academy, Hersham. This is the first of two matches this week and with a couple of injuries and rested players there were some small changes to the starting line-up. The game started brightly and Beacon were one-nil up within the space of a couple of minutes after Dan tapped in a goal from a well floated corner. Just like last week, the opening goal set the precedence for the rest of the game in which Beacon absolutely dominated possession and territory for large proportions of the match. In what can only be described as some of the best football I have seen from this football team, Beacon passed the ball around, spraying it from left to right and making Three Rivers work hard. Beacon scored another goal, this time from Tom and the team looked comfortable for the rest of the half. Poor Billy in goal had to do what he could to keep warm as he stood watching the game being played up the other end of the pitch. The second half saw Beacon continue to dominate and further goals added from Jack J and sealing his second hat-trick is just as many games, Tom. The final score of 5-0 did not necessarily reflect the performance on the pitch and credit must be given to the opposition goalie for keeping the score as low as it was. Well done Beacon, and rest up before tomorrow’s league game against Reigate School.
Year 10 Beacon vs De Stafford
Beacon 5 - De Stafford 3
The Year 10 team were in action for the first time this season, and what a start to the season. The game was away at De Stafford, and it was a double header (1st round of the cup and league fixture). The game started eventfully, and we were slow out the blocks. We found ourselves 3-0 down in a matter of minutes. Poor communication between our players led to mistakes being made that proved costly. Half time came quickly and we started to come back into the game. Some tactical changes from Mr Tyson and a change in formation started to switch the Beacon boys on. We were much more solid at the back. Tom and Reuben started to get on the ball, and Jack and Will were getting in behind time after time. Confusion at the back, and Jack poked the ball into the corner to make it 3-1. This was followed by an own goal from a De Stafford defender, 3-2. A cross from Jack resulted in Reuben hitting the post, followed in by Will in the top corner. Full time 3-3 and on to extra time. The first half of extra time and Will scores a goal quickly to put the game in our favour, 4-3. Frankie then finishes the game with a close in finish, 5-3. The Beacon boys should be proud of the character and resilience they showed to get back in the game and come away with the win. On to the next game. Come on Beacon!!
Man of the match - Tom
Year 11 Beacon vs Glenthorne
Beacon 0- Glenthorne 2
Beacon played Glenthorne in the Surrey cup, and it was a thrilling game. Beacon played well at times, and had some good possession and created some good chances. Ivan quick off his line and Jake solid at the back. Luke controlled the game from start to finish and it was a shame to come away without a goal.
Man of the match- Luke
Year 10 District Netball Tournament
What an afternoon of netball it has been today. The Beacon team have been on fire! A flying start with a 9-1 win over Oakwood, followed by a tough second game against Woldingham but the Beacon team came out on top with a 3-2 win. It all came down to the final game against Warlingham where the girls played fantastically and won 7-1! An absolutely phenomenal result and outstanding achievement. Congratulations to the new Year 10 District Shield winners!! Special mentions for Emily C, Amber B, Katie N, Lucy P, Rebecca S and extra special mentions for Katie N and Jessie W! I’m so proud of you all!

The Year 7 team travelled to Rutlish in the 1st round of the Surrey Cup. After a competitive first half the boy's found themselves 1-0 down due to a penalty for the home side. After half time Rutlish showed their class and pulled away from The Beacon School eventually running out 4-0 winners. The boy's effort was brilliant throughout and were simply beaten by the better team on the day. Archie stood out for the Beacon with his positive forward runs, picking up the man of the match.

The Year 8 football team were looking to build upon their impressive first league victory with a win in the County Cup first round. The opponents were Rutlish school.
The Beacon started strongly with a goal inside the first 2 minutes. Smith struck a lovely 20 yard effort into the top corner. The Beacon took this lead into the interval but seemed to take their foot off the gas after their early goal.
The Beacon started the second half exactly as the first with a goal inside the first 2 minutes (Reader-Wells), to make it 0-2. Shortly after, a penalty was awarded against The Beacon which Rutlish scored to make it 1-2. This did not phase the boys as they put together attack after attack. Reader-Wells then scored his second and completed his hattrick with 5 minutes to go making the score 1-4.
Reader-Wells for his hattrick and Evans for his impressive combative display shared the ‘Men of the Match’ award.
Final score: Rutlish 1 - 4 The Beacon
Well done to the squad and thank you for Rutlish school for being great hosts.
The Year 7 football team came up against a well drilled stylish outfit from St Bedes. After a positive start by the Beacon, St Bedes took the lead through a fantastic individual goal. They went in at half time 2 nil up after a scrappy goal from a corner. The Beacon fought well till the final whistle eventually going down 3-0. Special mentions to Thiago and Mason for their work rate and desire.
The Year 9 boy’s football team began the defence of their league title this week. On Monday they travelled to De Stafford School and began the game on a very positive note. Within the space of 10 minutes, Beacon were 2-0 ahead through well-taken goals from Jack and Tom. Beacon dominated possession in the first half, playing simple passing football that saw them double their lead to 4-0 by another goal from Tom as well as Sam S. The half time break couldn’t come quick enough for De Stafford as they were finding it increasingly difficult to maintain possession or territory for any real length of time. The second half was a mirror image of the first in terms of domination from Beacon. A third goal from Tom saw him seal his hat-trick and three further goals from Sam S., Sam W., and Dan meant that Beacon finished 8 – 0 winners! In reality, the man of the match award could have been given to anyone of the boys that played, however, the honours were given to Tom for three well taken goals and 3 assists. A superb start to the new season. Well done boys!
Year 7 Girls Football Match
Beacon vs Chertsey High School
The Beacon Year 7s were out competing again this week, this time with the Year 7 girls football team. We were away at Chertsey High School and the girls were very excited. The opposition started strongly with a quick goal in the first 2 minutes. We found ourselves 1-0 down so quickly, but the Beacon girls did not quit. A quick sprint dribble and finish from Honey brought the game level. Lacey then contributed with 2 fantastic finishes from some good passing, and Honey finished the game off with another goal off the post towards the end.
A fantastic all round performance and what a start to the season. Come on Beacon!!
Woman of the match: Honey
The Beacon School 2 – 5 St. Bedes
After a difficult to take defeat, the Year 7 Netball Team played a very well fought match against St. Bedes and saw some positive improvements on their first match. Some great out court play, saw the Year 7’s record their first successful shots of the season, and we were delighted to score twice in the game. Unfortunately, despite much improved play, the Year 7 Team lost 5-2 and will again return to the coaching courts keen to improve for match 3 of the season. Well done to all involved; Onwards and Upward Team and ‘Be Excellent!’
