Boys Football - ESFA Elite Cup

Royal Russell U15As 3-0 The Petersfield School

The U15As progressed into the 3rd round of the ESFA Elite Cup after a convincing 3-0 victory away to The Petersfield School.

There was no frights for the U15s on Halloween as our GK Lucas Cheung was a spectator for the game. Despite some good passing of the ball and some good chances, Royal Russell couldn’t score against a stubborn Petersfield defence with Evan Newman, Tom Scarles, Zac Brennan and Dylan De Gale all having efforts saved or wide. It wasn’t until captain Zac Brennan played a fantastic 50 yard diagonal pass to Stanley Moore on the left, who unleashed an unstoppable volley across the GK to open the scoring, 1-0.

Royal Russell continued to dominate in the 2nd half with the introduction of fresh legs of Anniyah Rodney, Charles Hayden de Carbonneirers and Harvey Wright-Phillips playing their part. However, it was to of the starters who combined for the 2nd. Dylan De Gale who was finding great pockets all afternoon got on the half turn, slipped in Evan Newman and the striker finished well to make it 2-0. The 3rd goal came as Arthur Leake who was a threat all afternoon on the right pressed well to reagin possession. He found Charles Hayden de Carbonneires who thumped it home across the GK into the far corner.

A professional and dominate display with everyone playing their part in an excellent performance.

Well done team!
