Shenfield High School's under-12 boys stormed into the next round of the National Cup with a resounding win over Barking Abbey.

After an evening opening, Shenfield began to play some attractive passing football to pull Abbey’s defence apart.

And they went into the half-time break with a five-goal advantage, before netting twice more in the second half to complete a 7-0 victory.

Victor Umeh’s hat-trick led the way, as Charlie Panton scored twice and Harrison Parrker and Theo Britney-Halloran also struck,

And the win sees Shenfield as the last Essex school left in two National competitions, having progressed to the last 16 of the elite competition – with no restriction on Academy players – and the cup, where a maximum of three Academy players are allowed.

Shenfield High’s under-12s are also into the latter stages of the B Cup, for non-A team players.
