Contrasting wins over Eastlea
Marshalls Park School enjoyed a pair of contrasting cup wins over rivals Eastlea.
The year 8 squad romped to a 10-0 away win in their Essex Cup tie, with Charlie Moore scoring the pick of the bunch of their goals.
Tommy Vaughan, Jamie Olley and David Prentice were also praised for their performances.
The under-15s, meanwhile, needed extra time to secure a 2-1 victory over their Eastlea rivals in the National Cup.
Eastlea took the lead inside 15 minutes when a long ball over the Marshalls Park defence was met by the striker, who finished well.
Tom Burke levelled with a deflected shot from the edge of the box and Park had chances to win it in normal time.
Harry Potts rattled the crossbar, but Park had John-Paul Miccallief to thank for a great save which denied Eastlea a late winner.
James Sammons put Marshalls back in front during the extra period, though, as he headed home from Johnny Fisher’s cross for his third goal in two games.
“The lads played well,” said teacher Paul Aylett. “There is still room for improvement and they will have to play better when they take on Shenfield High.”
Park host Shenfield in the next round on October 2.
Prince Atender is proving to be a karate knockout as he took a gold medal in the UK Championships in Sheffield.
