Havering Cup: Royal Liberty 2 Marshalls Park 5
Four-goal Tommy Gamon inspired Marshalls Park to victory in their opening Havering Cup game of the season at Royal Liberty.
Gamon opened the scoring early on, but Liberty pressed hard and had a number of chances to equalise.
Park’s defence dealt with the pressure and the visitors played some good counter-attacking football, with Adam Garson doubling their lead midway through the half.
The home side hit back before the interval, but Marshalls began the second period well with Gamon netting twice from close range to complete his hat-trick.
And after a battling Liberty side claimed their second, Gamon completed the scoring with his fourth goal of the match, as Freddie Whitmore took Park’s man of the match award for a superb display in midfield.
Teacher Ben Dowsey said: “I’m really pleased with their first performance, hopefully they can build on it in their next game.”
Park are due to play Bower Park in their next Havering Cup match next Thursday (September 25), with Emerson Park, Coopers Coborn, Brittons and St Edwards also in their group this season.
Park: Luscombe, Carter, Cook, Palmer, Whitmore, Leyden, Stutley, Wilson, Gamon, Garson, Begu, Williams, Porter.
*Redden Court ran out 4-1 winners against Hall Mead in their Havering Cup meeting.
Enock Soganile netted twice, with Dan Carter and Connor Hartwell also on target for Court.
