Match Report
Royal Russell School Boys-U18C vs  Whitgift School
On: Saturday, 05 Oct 2019
Venue: at Home

The 3XI also played out their fixture against Whitgift on Saturday.

There were a number of enforced changes, but that gave opportunity to Michael Johnson, Jamie Warrilow, Arjun Dintakurti, Jack Tree, Justin Chow and Xavier Obi.

Captain Tobi Sanomi led the way breaking strongly out from defence whenever the opportunity arose and his example inspired Sam Skene to overlap with Lucas Steele down the right, Lucas got the ball back just inside the area, 1-0 RR. Whitgift tried hard to get back on level terms but MoM Calum Firth stood resolute in defence. After half-time and with the introduction of the new boys, RR went further ahead almost immediately; Justin getting on the end of some excellent interplay to slot the ball neatly home. Evian Stennett was then the recipianbt of some excellent approach wotk from Xavier that left him 1-on-1 with the keeper. No mistake, 3-0 RR.

Michael J almost made it 4 with a delightful effort that lobbed both their last two defenders from well outside the area, unfortunately the goal was disallowed as their keeper was judged to have been fouled in the build-up.

A very good result from a team shaping up well.
