Football squad ease to convincing win
Shenfield High School Under-18s made a magnificent start to their quest for National Cup glory yesterday.
Having received a bye in the first round, they came up against a Ravensbourne side who had put nine past Harris Academy in their previous tie.
And Shenfield raced out of the blocks, creating numerous chances in the first half.
Director of football Lee Thomas and head coach Warren Fenton were left frustrated as only one chance was taken, by Yeshaya Lomotey, before the break.
Matthew Newman somehow missed a close-range header, but Shenfield made up for their misses in the second half as they scored seven more times.
Josh Norman netted a brace, with Steven Piper, Matthew Williams, Andy Freeman and Jonny Nash also on target in the rout.
Thomas said: “The students have been working incredibly hard on the training pitch and competition for places in the team is fierce.
“Therefore it was pleasing to see them deliver in this competition and I hope we continue this run.”
Shenfield, who train every day as part of their Academy set-up with Colchester United, host Plume School in the next round.
