Emerson Park’s Year 7 boys celebrated back-to-back wins this week.

They booked their place in the next round of the National Cup with a 4-2 success over Howard School on Tuesday.

And they followed it up with a convincing 8-0 romp against Royal Liberty in the Havering Cup yesterday (Wednesday).

Yusif Bizimana opened the scoring against Howard in the first half, with Tom Troubridge doubling the lead soon after the restart.

George Ishmail converted from the penalty spot to make it 3-0, before Howard replied with a quickfire double.

Bizimana’s second goal of the game sealed victory for Park and teacher Greg Hobson said: “It was a good, solid performance on a very heavy pitch.

“It was quite even early on, with us slightly on top, but we were not that troubled until Howard scored two quick goals.

“It was a fair result.”

Park must wait to learn who their opponents will be in the next round, but their place in the semi-finals of the Havering Cup is all but secured after last night’s emphatic triumph.

Troubridge and Ishmail scored twice each, with Bizimana, Charlie Munns, Bradleigh Rowland and Josh Oluwayemi completing the tally.

Park visit Sanders on Monday, then host Tendring in the next round of the Essex Cup on Wednesday.
