The Beacon go marching on into the Quarter Finals of the Surrey Cup after a fantastic 1-0 victory over Warlingham!

On a very wet Friday afternoon, The Beacon year 8 football team travelled to Warlingham to play their 3rd Round Surrey Cup fixture. The two sides met earlier in the season with The Beacon losing 2-0, so this tie was sure to be a cracker! 

The game started fast as both teams battled the conditions to get control of the game. The Beacon were playing against a strong wind and rain which made it difficult to launch attacks. That being said, the boys managed to put together some lovely passing moves to get up the pitch and create two good opportunities for Taylor and Lorcan; the latter made his debut for Beacon. Jack and James worked together brilliantly in the heart of The Beacon defence as James did not lose a header or tackle and Jack was extremely calm and composed on the ball to start attacks from the back. 

Half way through the first half The Beacon had a free kick just wide of the 18 yard box. The night before we had practiced set pieces so there was a plan in place, and it worked perfectly; Olly crossed a lovely ball into Jack to volley in from close range - 1-0 Beacon! 

The second half began and the weather started to ease, which was frustrating as it would have been with The Beacon for the second half. The boys continued to battle and Warlingham started to put the boys under pressure searching for an equaliser. The Beacon held on to reach the quarter finals of the Surrey Cup, which is in itself a huge achievement.

Final score: Warlingham 0-1 The Beacon

Men of the match: Alfie, Harry, Jacob, Jack, James, Alfie M, Sonny, Olly, Freddie, Luis, Taylor, George and Lorcan.

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.
