Football - South London Cup Final v London Nautical

On Wednesday a group of our Key Stage 4 students represented the Academy in the U16 South London Cup Final against London Nautical.

It was a classic cup tie full of goals, glimpses of hope and shocking refereeing decisions - definitely one the neutral would have enjoyed.

We started brightly and Ahamed was rewarded for his work rate when the ball dropped to him on the edge of box and he was able to guide a difficult bouncing ball into the bottom corner. 1-0 HBAED.

The goal got our spectators going which included team PE, Mr Carey the behaviour team, PC Marcus, Mr Ingham, the KCSG groundsmen, a few parents, Joshua Koroma and about 50 HBAED students. Thank you, the support throughout was greatly appreciated by players.

To be fair to London Nautical they went on to dominate the first half and although their goals were all soft and should have been dealt with the 3-1 score line at the break did not flatter them.

The second half started well with us on the front foot and this lead to penalty being won and converted by Reece. By Reece's own high standards this was not his best game in Harris shirt but I would like to say that over the years he has been mature above his years and it's been a pleasure to watch his performances for Harris. He is an exceptional talent hopefully with bright future in the game.

The moment of the match then came. A free kick awarded dead centre of the goal, 35 yards out (no exaggeration)! As Bilal lined up to shoot Mr Ingham was voicing his anger over the thought a shoot was even on from this range. Bilal, who was outstanding all game at centre half, pinged the ball with swerve and dip which beat the goal keeper all ends up. Ronaldo esq.

London Nautical pinched the winner with five minutes to go which was difficult for the boys to take but to their credit they stayed and applauded the winners while they paraded the trophy.

Losing in a final is never easy but they should take some plaudits for being the second best team in South London. An area of the Country that breeds more footballing talent than anywhere else.
