Havering Cup: Hall Mead 1 Redden Court 4

Redden Court’s under-15 boys kicked off their Havering Cup campaign with an away win at Hall Mead.

Having performed well the previous week in a friendly match win against Marshalls Park, the visitors went into the game with lots of confidence.

Redden Court took the lead, but went in at half-time on level terms following a controversial Hall Mead equaliser after the referee ruled that the keeper had picked up a back pass and awarded an indirect free-kick.

Kicking down the hill in the second half Redden Court regained a well deserved lead with about 15 minutes to.

Two further goals secured a good victory, with Enock Soganile (2), Connor Hartwell and Daniel Parker the Redden Court marksmen.

Teacher Anthony Henry said: “There were some big performances all over the park. The boys have their eyes on a final place this year after narrowly missing out last year after being defeated by Abbs Cross in the semi-finals.

“But it will have to be a very good campaign to get out of a very tough group, which includes champions Emerson Park and the much-fancied Coopers.”
