Royal Liberty’s year seven boys’ team are through to the next round of the National Cup following a splendid 2-1 success away to Whitgift School.

The youngsters conceded the game’s first goal in south London, but hit back to equalise through William Smyth.

The Gidea Park school then took the lead through Ken Keaton with five minutes remaining and held on to their advantage in the closing moments.

It was also a second straight win for Royal Liberty having also beaten local rivals Emerson Park in the Havering Cup on their last outing.
