Marshalls Park Academy played some outstanding football to beat Barking Abbey in the Essex Cup on Friday evening.

The visitors produced some quality possession football in the first half but couldn’t find the back of the net as Abbey’s keeper twice tipped over shots from Jack Glenister and Joe Damrell missed a one-on-one chance.

The Romford pupils continued to dominate in the second half and got the breakthrough goal from Alfie Parrish, who headed home at the back post after Connor Watson’s delightful cross.

Two goals from Glenister then settled the tie, the first a free kick from 20 yards which was tucked into the bottom corner and the other when he pounced on a keeper’s error from five yards.

PE teacher Paul Aylett said: “The boys were amazing. Physically they looked sharp, mentally they were strong and some of the possession play was to be applauded.

“It was also nice to get positive comments from the opposition coaches, I’m very proud.”
