Past Fixtures & Results
On Monday the year 7 girls football team travelled to Greenshaw to meet in the double header for both league and cup. The game started positively and the Beacon took an early lead with 2 composed goals from Honey. The game then went quite with even possession out field and the ball yo-yo’ing in both halves. Greenshaw managed to score within seconds on the half time whistle. Half-time 2-1.
Greenshaw must have had a motivational half time team talk as they came out fighting and in the early minutes equalised 2-2. Beacon kept their cool and calmly played the ball up the field to score another great goal by Honey - HATRICK. Greenshaw responded and in minutes were drawing once again 3-3. In desperate moments Beacon kept the ball out of their half and finally Lola after a great through ball from Gracie scored the finisher to give Beacon the win !
Netball v Oxted
The Year 7’s unfortunately lost 6-1 to Oxted on Tuesday 15th January but they worked really well as a team and they were the better team by the 4th quarter. Player of the match Maya
Year 8: Year 8 had a very close Netball match against Oxted and were leading in the second quarter however they ended up losing by 10 goals to 7. Olivia was nominated player of the match
The Year 8 football team were invited to our first ever futsal competition over at Carshalton Boys Sports College. For those of you that are unsure of what futsal is, it is similar to indoor football, but is played with a heavier ball, and the rules make it much more fast paced. The boys got off to a fantastic start and had 3 games to play. Game 1 was a solid 1-0 victory VS Wimbledon College. Game 2 was a frustrating one, with Beacon having all the possession and striking the post 3 times! The game finished 0-0. This meant we needed a win against the hosts to secure a place in the finals. Beacon started well and hit the bar after a few seconds, quickly followed up with a 1-0 lead. 10 seconds with a lapse in concentration resulted in 2 quick fire goals from CBSC and the game finished with a 2-1 loss. The boys represented the school fantastically well, and lived up to the high expectations we have as a footballing school.

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.

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.
