Havering Cup: Marshalls Park 7 Hall Mead 2
Marshalls Park’s year seven boys extended their unbeaten run in the Havering Cup to four matches with a convincing win against previously unbeaten Hall Mead.
An outstanding first-half performance proved key for Marshalls as the impressive Freddie Potts helped himself to five goals to put them firmly on top.
Bradley Gray also found the net with a good finish through the keeper’s legs and Potts returned in the second half in a different position, netting his sixth and Marshalls’ seventh goal of the match.
Teacher Paul Aylett said: “The standout players were obviously Potts and Gray, but Harvey Jones was solid at the back and is starting to learn to control play from the back and had a great performance.
“I’m really proud of the lads and the way they played. They were awesome in the first half. The intensity and finishing phenomenal.
“I hope they can take that form into the National Cup when they play Orleans Park on Thursday at home.”
Marshalls year 10s are due to host Chafford tomorrow (Wednesday), with the year eights travelling to Bower Park on Thursday.
