Buckslions U18s are through to the semi finals of the national cup!
On Monday 16th January, Buckslions took on East London School Barking Abbey in the English Schools National Cup.
After a nervous start, Buckswood took control from a direct freekick from Aaron Burgess form 20 yards!
We played superb counter attacking football and managed to be 3-0 up at Half time!
The next goal was all important and Barking quickly changed their tactics to get back into the game. They targeted Lorenz Witzler and put two players on him. But hat just left space in behind for us to exploit.
The final score was 5-1. Such a fantastic achievement for a school of our size to be competing and in the last 4 where over 120 schools entered.
The semi final will be in February.
U16s play their National cup game on Wednesday so we wish thed good luck!
Both Form 3 and 4 football squads were preparing for cup fixtures last week and this, with Form 4 taking on Durrington at home on Friday in the County Cup and Form 4 against Chigwell on Wednesday in the National Cup. Training had been productive and focused this week, and it clearly showed in Form 4 National Cup match.
With Backwood building up steady throughout the half, the score at half-time was nil nil. The second half saw the Form 4 get a hold of the game with a well worked goal from Austin Gann after just 8 minutes, only for Buckswood to make a defensive mistake, allowing Chigwell’s striker to intercept a poor back pass and score. Buckswood stepped up a gear, when Austin’s long range shot was parried for Suguru Matsumoto to score. Chigwell then committed players forward trying to equalise, but Buckswood mounted a brilliant counter-attack with Austin and Suguru combining on the half way line, for Suguru to break free onto the opposition's goalkeeper to score his second, and the decisive third goal that puts us into the Quarter finals.
Great team performance, with Suguru Matsumoto Man of the Match.
We are now recruiting payers for September 2017!
