Past Fixtures & Results
The Year 9 football team played Warlingham in the district league. The game started evenly as Warlingham started to build some early pressure. Both teams struggled to get hold of the game and not many chances were created in the first half.
With only 11 men, Beacon had two plans in place for the second half. Warlingham started well and scored a well worked goal to make it 1-0. Plan 2 then went into force. The Beacon started to win first and second balls to gain some momentum. After great pressure from George, Ollie picked up a loose pass to slot home to make it 1-1. The Beacon continued to work hard and with the last kick of the game had a free kick from 30 yards out. Ollie stepped up to take. What a strike! Through the goalkeeper it went to make it 2-1 Beacon!
Well done boys and thank you Warlingham for hosting and officiating.
Warlingham Away - Year 8
The Year 8 football team travelled to Warlingham after some promising performances this year. Beacon never got going in the game and came up against a very strong Warlingham side. The Beacon boys effort was outstanding but went in at half time 3-0 down after 2 wonder goals from 30 yards from the Warlingham striker. In the second half the Beacon midfielders got stuck in and started winning the ball back higher up the field which resulted in Jack scoring another goal this season. Can anyone catch him for the Year 8 golden boot? The game finished 5-1 after Warlingham netted another long range effort and a bicycle kick.
The year 8 boys behaviour was brilliant throughout and they were a credit to the school.

The year 9 football team played their Surrey Cup match against St Peters in Guildford. The game started evenly as both teams aimed to gain possession on a small pitch. St Peters had a couple of great chances to open the scoring but a mixture of great Alfie saves and great defending meant they could not finish what they had created.
Towards the end of the half, Beacon got a corner which George delivered for Freddie to strike from outside the box; 1-0 Beacon.
The second half started and again both sides were evenly matched. After a golden opportunity for St Peters to equalise, Beacon went up the other end to make it 2-0; Freddie with a strong run and neat finish. This is how it ended with Beacon going forward to the next round of the Surrey Cup.
Thanks to St Peters for hosting and refereeing and to Beacon parents for their support.
The year 9 football team played Reigate in the league on a frosty Monday evening. The boys started well, keeping possession, creating width and looking dangerous in attack. A sweeping move down the left flank between, Jacob, Sonny, Luis ended with Ollie finishing a well worked Beacon goal; 1-0 Beacon.
The second half began and Sonny hit the crossbar with a superb effort. Again, Beacon dominated play before Sonny assisted Freddie who struck it low past the Reigate keeper; 2-0 Beacon.
Alfie didn’t have much to do in goal but a fantastic free kick was going top corner, only for Alfie to finger tip save past the post. The next goal was vital and it was Sonny with a 25 yard screamer to make it 3-0, game, set, match!
Another great performance. Thanks to Reigate for hosting and refereeing the game.
Final Score: Reigate 0-3 Beacon

Freddie T, then launched a thunderbolt strike to make it 1-0 Beacon. From the kick off Jack and Freddie T. shut the defender down, Freddie then dispatched it to make it 2-0 Beacon a minute later. Alfie B made a couple of heroic saves to keep it 2-0 before Ollie crossed a delightful free kick for James to score a header at the back post; 3-0 Beacon and looking comfortable.
After the break, The Beacon made some changes and it wasn’t long until number 4 was dispatched; guess who? Freddie T for the hattrick. Some lovely passing and possession kept Oxted frustrated and it wasn’t long before number 5. Taylor, with his right foot, curled one in the top bins! Alfie and Jack were putting in excellent goalkeeping and defensive displays at the back to keep the clean sheet. With about 5 minutes left on the clock, an Oxted defensive error lead to number 4 for Freddie and number 6 for Beacon. An excellent performance from The Beacon
