Ernest Bevin 3 HBAED 3 - Year 8 Football

FootballFollowing a great result last week, the Year 8 football team travelled to Ernest Bevin in Tooting hoping for another victory.

Harris started the game full of confidence showcasing some lovely two touch football. Ernest Bevin didn’t look at the races. Harris’ pressure was rewarded when a corner fell to the feet of Ramari and he poked it beyond the flailing goalkeeper.

After the goal, Ernest Bevin seemed to wake up, earning themselves a corner at the opposite end of the pitch. A lack of communication meant that their number eight had a very easy finish right on the goal line. 1-1 and it was game on. 


Joshua and Tayo started to take control of the centre of the pitch. A switch of play found the effervescent Qasim on the right wing. A good touch followed by an audacious shot caused the Ernest Bevin keeper all sorts of problems before finding its way into the back of the net.

Half time arrived and Harris were in the driving seat. Some more sophisticated play led to Tayo playing a through ball to Lemar, who took a touch before slotting the ball into the far corner with his left foot.

Some poor decisions in midfield led to Ernest Bevin pulling a goal back. The once untroubled Harris side now looked scared. The side from Tooting could smell blood and they continued to press. With two minutes to go, a low shot hit one of the biggest bobbles every witnessed on a football pitch before bouncing over the helpless Nour.

An entertaining game finished 3-3, in which Harris could have easily run out 6-2 winners on another day. Hopefully a wake up call before their second round tie in the National Cup against Marshall’s Park Academy from Essex.

Mr Nowers

Man of the Match. Joshua continued his strong start to the season with a commanding display in central midfield.

Great stamina. Tayo worked tirelessly for the team in defence and attack.

Stepping up. Jason got the call-up following some impressive training sessions. He didn’t disappoint with some big tackles and marauding runs.
