Sunday 5th November 
(Brentwood School)

Three ISFA South teams competed against Essex Schools on Sunday 5th November at Brentwood School. Match reports can be found below. The list of players selected for the final national trials on 26th November at Shrewsbury School for U17 and U18 age groups will be announced on the ISFA website on Monday 13th November.

ISFA South U18 White 3 Essex Schools 0

A pleasing all round performance from the boys this afternoon. The boys were deployed in a new shape of 3-5-1-1 and should be pleased with how quickly and impressively they adapted. After an even start in the opening few minutes, the boys began to take control, moving the ball from side to side looking for opportunities to play through the Essex back four. Aziz, Arbuckle and Trenaman were finding nice pockets of space and pushing the ball around confidently. That said, it took the boys a while to carve out a clear cut chance. It fell to Newbury-Teeluck who just couldn't connect firmly enough with a fine back post cross from Aziz. The second period saw the boys step up the tempo and improve the clarity in the passing. This led to Aziz opening the scoring with a fine chip, followed up shortly after by a close range finish from Abiru, thanks to super work from Arbuckle. It was Holland who rounded things off with a neat finish to make it 3-0 in what ended up being a comfortable and convincing performance.

ISFA South U18 Blue 4 Essex Schools 0

ISFA dominated the possession in large parts of the first half in particular showing great composure when playing out the back and carving chances early on in the game. Calvin Kissi (Ardingly) supplying the first goal from the penalty spot. The second half was more of the same with half chances being created, and with this sustained pressure the Essex goalkeeper released the ball on the edge of his own box to only be picked up by Nicholas Tilling (Royal Russell) to supply Kissi for his second. Essex pushed to get a goal back but two swift moves from ISFA killed the game, the first came from Archie Harker (Westminster) on the turn who expertly volleyed the ball into the bottom corner and the second came from the ball ricocheting in the wide area to fall to Will Davis (Hampton) who squeezed the ball past the recovering goalkeeper.

ISFA South U17 4 Essex Schools 0

The ISFA south U17 team came together remarkably well for a team that has had relatively little time to get to know each other. It quickly became apparent that their obvious ability to press and harry the opposition all over the pitch was going to prove difficult for the Essex representative side to deal with. ISFA put together some excellent play, combining nicely on both wings and repeatedly getting in round the back of the Essex defence. However, they were unable to convert, and the score remained level at the half. There was little to change at the half, but a more deliberate effort in front of goal soon reaped its reward and ISFA rode out 4-0 winners. An impressive start to their time together with all players impressing the assembled coaching staff.

(Charterhouse School)

ISFA South "White" 3 Kent Schools 5

This match was extremely entertaining and played at an extremely high tempo from start to finish. Kent opened the scoring after thirty-five minutes and ISFA quickly responded as a cross from Josh Newbury-Teeluck was met by Ethan Radus and an opposition defender who appeared to get the last touch. Kent regained their lead before Adam Aziz, once again, levelled with a curling effort from distance. Errors from ISFA saw Kent take a 4-2 lead. Tommy Trenaman though made it 3-4 and an interesting last ten minutes of football. Whilst ISFA pushed forward, Kent caught them on the break and were awarded a penalty to finish the game off.

ISFA South "Red" 2 Kent Schools 1

ISFA showed a real battling performance in this extremely tight match. Ryan Welch was the scorer as the team came in at half time level at 1-1.  Chances were had at either end but it was Demi Odunlami’s well taken goal that proved the different between the teams.

ISFA South "Blue" 5 Corinthian Casuals 1

ISFA dominated the game from start to finish moving the ball at pace and with intent. Goals were scored by Alex Nanni (2), Marcel Aziamale, Alex Taylor and James Tee. A rare ISFA mistake in possession gave Corinthian’s a consolation goal. 

The next set of fixtures will be played on Sunday 5th November at Brentwood School.  The squad will be announced on Wednesday 4th October.
