Marshalls Park year eights beat Dulwich school Harris at Kings College


Marshalls Park Academy’s year eight boys booked a place in the next round of the National Cup with an exciting 4-3 win over Dulwich school Harris.

The visitors began well on the excellent pitches of Kings College and took the lead through S Munden, who chased up a shot from C Hubbard.

A mistake at the back let Harris in to level, but R Fry struck twice in the space of 10 minutes to put Park 3-1 up.

The Romford pupils were then punished for losing concentration as Harris countered on the right and their full back finished well from a defence-splitting pass.

L Gardener restored the two-goal cushion for Park and although Harris grabbed a third goal in the closing stages it was only a consolation.

Park PE teacher Paul Aylett said: “The boys played well and again showed they can play some great football with less touches. We need to work on defending to ensure we get through the next round.”
