Havering Cup: Marshalls Park 3 Drapers 2; Marshalls Park 3 Sanders 0
Marshalls Park’s year seven boys enjoyed back-to-back wins over their borough rivals in the Havering Cup.
They took the lead against Drapers throguh Freddie Potts, but then conceded twice to fall behind and had to dig deep to get back into the game.
Rome Boyce and Potts both had good chances, but were just wide, before finally drawing level.
Chances came at both ends as the game got stretched, but in the last minute Frankie Mowle’s corner was turned into his own net by a Drapers defender to give Park the points.
Paul Aylett said: “It was a really good tough game. It’s good to maintain a winning start and hopefully the lads can carry this on.”
Park put in a great performance against Sanders, although both sides missed chances in the early stages.
Charlie Reynolds squandered two golden chances for Park, as they began to play the better football, but he redeemed himself with the opening goal before half time.
Potts and Bradley Guinn added fine second-half strikes to seal victory to the delight of Aylett, who added: “The boys were terrific not conceding. Although we scored three, we could’ve had a hatful. Hopefully the boys are saving themselves for their Essex Cup game on Friday.”
*Marshalls Park’s girls were also celebrating after a 5-1 friendly win against Albany.
There were really strong performances from Park’s players, as Amber Le Beau and Ella Cunningham impressed manager Miss Whitley once more.
A spokesperson said: “The game was organised to help Albany develop and was played in great spirits. Good luck to both teams for the rest of the season.”
