Three levels bring home points for representatives

Essex County Schools FA Representative teams at three levels all returned home from matches in Sussex with something to show for their efforts.

The under-18 boys, under-16 girls and under-14 girls competed in either the English Schools FA Inter-County or South-East England Schools FA competitions.

For Graham Hall’s under-18’s and Emma Burden’s under-16’s there was exciting progress in the National Cup.

Meanwhile the under-14’s, coached by Sharon Brownlie, performed well to secure a draw against a strong side having advanced in their own ESFA encounter earlier in December.

The under-16’s scored twice in each half to defeat Sussex 4-1 and earn a double victory, as the match was both a regional and national fixture.

Sophie Jones and Kirsty Jackson finished off corner kicks delivered by Hannah Humphries as Essex came in 2-0 up at the break.

Sussex emerged in the second period with spirit and determination which enabled them to finish an opportunity and make the score 2-1.

But Essex replied in a positive fashion with a classy one-on-one finish from Charlotte Kellett.

And Shakella Kemp delivered a cross for Tameesha Blackwood to get on the score sheet and seal the victory.

The under-18’s needed a penalty shoot-out to get through to the third round of the English Schools FA Inter-County competition.

Essex dominated the first half without any goals to show for their efforts, but it only took 10 minutes in the second half for them to open the scoring.

A fine move between Ruben Duarte and Owen Edebor helped Sean Clare put the visitors into the lead.

But Sussex equalised after some slack defending and although Essex pushed for a winner it wasn’t forthcoming.

The game continued through extra time, and penalties eventually ensued.

Sussex, who went first, put their third over the bar and Hornchurch goalkeeper Callum Chaffer saved the fourth.

And Essex scored all four of theirs through Clare, Rigers Kabashi, John Nutman and Remi Awosinga to move into next round, where they host Surrey or Somerset.

The under-14’s returned from Sussex with a hard-fought draw as they shared two goals.

Essex enjoyed the better of the first half, but couldn’t make the most of their chances.

And the hosts punished them early in the second half by taking the lead, but Sophie Nyiro added the finishing touches to Connie Forman’s cross to earn a share of the spoils.
