Match Report
Royal Russell School Boys-U18C vs  Lancing College
On: Saturday, 09 Nov 2019
Venue: Away

On Saturday, senior football travelled down to Lancing College, resurrecting an old, traditional fixture against one of the grandest schools in the country – check out their chapel!

The 3XI continued masquerading as the 2XI which meant a tough day playing up 1 level, but it is testament to the depth of talent in the school that we remain so competitive.

As the wind howled and the rain swept in from the Channel, we struggled to contain their very lively (and really tall) centre forward. This situation was not helped by the absence of some senior players with dubious excuses. Despite some stoic defence, we conceded twice before earning a clear cut penalty which was confidentially converted by Alex L.

Back in the game we couldn’t keep the ball and they scored again. However, in the last 15 mins, we got into our stride and pressed hard. After a goalmouth scramble where any number of players could claim the goal we ended the game 2-3 losers.
