Coach Darren said:

“After two previous attempts to play our County Cup match we finally managed to get it played today on the third attempt.

I could have forgiven the team for being a bit rusty with lack of matches, but it didn’t show.

A super start to the match with the team moving the ball around unselfishly saw Kieran line the ball up for Charlie to finish superbly in the bottom corner.

Withdean came back and levelled the match from a good header. The way we were playing I had no doubt we would take back control, which we did from another great finish by Jack S.

Half time saw us leading 2-1. I asked the team to go and win the second half and carry on with good football.

We had countless chances going into the second half. A clearance from Withdean defender saw the ball go out 30+ yards, Jack G took a touch and then shot from 30 yards the ball travelled over everyone and the keeper had no chance as it thundered in off the crossbar. It has to be one of the best strikes and goals I have ever witnessed, well done Jack.

Leading 3-1 Withdean were not going to give up and came back from a corner/cross to head the ball in the top corner.

Adding to the drama, we then helped out Withdean by scoring an own goal, Nathan tried to clear the ball from close range but unlucky put it in the net. 3-3 match was on and had to start thinking about penalties.

We carried on with determination and resilience, another period of great team play build up saw George strike the ball from which the keeper made a very good save, but no denying George on the second strike, which put us back in control.

We kept on with the pressure and a very unselfish pass by Kieran allowed Ben to finish the ball with a precision shot into the goal.

The remaining minutes ticked away and we finished 5-3 winners.

During the match the whistle was blown at 11am and play stopped immediately for two minutes whilst players, coaches and supporters observed a two minutes silence for remembrance Sunday, Let’s us never forget.

We are now the only U17s team left in the U18s cup and go into the last 16. This is a superb achievement by the team and a credit to each and every player.

What impressed me the most today was the positivity coming from every player, lots of encouragement for each other which ultimately lead us to win the match. I’m told even the opposing team’s parents said the same about us.

Well played team 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻”
