Bradfield College claimed the Boodles ISFA Cup for the first time in their history, after a deserved win over Repton in a match refereed by Premier League official, Martin Atkinson.

Bradfield started the game brightly and were quickly rewarded when Ethan Yeung completed a smart turn on the edge of the box and slotted home what can only be described as a wonder goal.  Repton responded and came close to equalising when Killington charged down to block McCallion’s attempted clearance, but the Bradfield goalkeeper reacted well to claim the loose ball. As the first half progressed Bradfield looked to dominate the game, passing the ball through the thirds, maintaining possession, resulting in them advancing their lead when Mulikas converted from close range. Repton created opportunities to pull the game back before half time but failed to capitalise.

Repton came out fighting in the second half, pulling a goal back within minutes. A deep cross caused problems in the Bradfield defence and as the ball was headed back across goal, Raine headed home. Repton continued to maintain their tempo and push for an equaliser but were denied after Beuchler, Bradfield’s second goalkeeper, pulled off two great saves. Bradfield soon settled and restored their two-goal lead when Hodgkinson finished smartly after some excellent work in the box. Repton fought to the end but Bradfield calmly maintained possession to see out the remaining minutes and seal the victory.

ISFA is delighted to announce that leading Premier League official Martin Atkinson has kindly agreed to referee this season's Boodles ISFA Cup Final at MK Dons FC between Bradfield and Repton.


Bradfield and Millfield were two sides with a huge amount of history in this competition and this semi-final did not disappoint. The game was cagey in patches as both teams sussed each other out and then burst into life with end to end chances. Both defences were outstanding in their last-ditch protection of their goals. Millfield hit the post twice in the game whereas Bradfield had several 1v1 situations denied. If a team had scored they were always going to go on and win it but the goal never game as players were going down with cramp all over the pitch due to the huge amount of effort they had expended. The game had to be decided on penalties and with only one miss in the whole shootout, Jack Hodgkinson put away the final penalty to give Bradfield the victory and book their place in the final for the third time in five years. It has to be said that both teams played with an honour and commitment rarely seen in football, while displaying a break neck intensity. 

Repton made it through to their first Boodles ISFA Cup final since 2010. Repton started the brighter, with Williams, Aliev and Ferrinho working Repton into some good positions that they could capitalise on. However, Eton replied strongly and gradually grew into the game with a wonderful shot hitting the post and rolling along the line before going out of play. This would prove to be a crucial point on the game. In truth, the first half was scrappy and nervous, yielding very few clear-cut chances for either side. Repton came out for the second half and looked a little more purposeful. They built some good pressure and were rewarded when a superb corner was powered cleanly home by Oli Hickman. The crowd were at full volume as they roared Eton on to an equaliser. However, in truth, the Repton side looked strong and increasingly repelled the Eton attacks whilst starting to look the more likely side to score. Williams, Ferrinho and Buffin all had decent chances to add a second and, while Eton battled hard to the end, it was Repton who kept the clean sheet to take the game 1-0 and progress to the final. 


The match started off at a high pace with Millfield putting pressure on the Whitgift defence. Pereira opened the sore for Millfield halfway through the first half. Whitgift midfield trio responded well and had the lion’s share of possession for much of the remaining 20 minutes of the first period. With the wind at Whitgift backs in the second half they had territorial advantage for much of the time without penetrating a resolute Millfield defence. Two breakaway goals by Pereira in the final five minutes sealed victory for Millfield.

Repton started the match brightly, but Harrow went about their business in an organised manner with many athletic encounters all over the pitch. With the game 0-0 it was Repton edging things on the balance of chances and took the lead after a Killington shot looped off a Harrow boot and over the goalkeeper. Harrow looked a threat on the break but struggled to test the Repton goalkeeper in any meaningful way. Repton started the second half strongly with some good work from Ferrinho finished by Killington to give the home side a 2-0 lead. Harrow responded strongly and the game became scrappy from here on in. The next goal looked crucial but Harrow were unable to turn their possession into clear-cut chances and Repton were thwarted on several occasions by superb stops from the Harrow goalkeeper. A very well contested ISFA Quarter Final, but it is Repton who progress through to the Semi after Christmas.

On a bitterly cold afternoon both teams busily set about trying to link up and create early chances. Ardingly went close from a free-kick and nearly capitalised on the follow-up. Eton grew into the game and found a good rhythm playing down the slope, forging a number of half-chances. Halfway through the first half, a free kick from the left was headed clear, and looped on to the boot of Freddie Christian who struck a peach of a volley which flew into the Ardingly goal. Eton continued to press for a second for much of the remainder of the first half, hitting the post and going close on a couple of other occasions. Ardingly came out with renewed purpose in the second period and started really brightly, playing higher up the pitch and finding themselves threatening in several dangerous areas. Eton fought hard and wrestled themselves back into the game, often looking dangerous when breaking quickly. Lots of resolute defending from both sides kept clear-cut chances to a minimum and Eton ultimately held out for the win.

Highgate and Bradfield produced an entertaining and end to end encounter, on a cold afternoon in North London. Highgate started brightly and were unlucky to be behind after 10 mins when Jack Hodgkinson finished well from a long pass from goalkeeper Quinn McCallion. Highgate responded from this setback and caused the visitors problems. However, on the stroke of half time Ed Sideso’s headed goal gave Bradfield a two goal cushion. The second half was more open and goals from Joel Valentin, Jack Hodgkinson and Billy Bolt saw Bradfield go 5-0 up. To their credit Highgate kept pushing forward and scored an excellent free kick and then again 5 minutes later from the penalty spot, to reduce the arrears to 5-2. Bradfield though were to have the final say, and Billy Bolt scored late on to make the score 6-2 and put them in the hat for the last four.


In a classic game of two halves, Eton had much the better of the play and chances in the first half, forcing a great save from the Hampton goalkeeper that was tipped onto a post. Eton continued to look dangerous from set pieces and nearly opened their account after Fara Bashorun headed narrowly wide. After more pressure, Freddie Christian picked up a loose ball and drove a shot expertly into the bottom corner from 25 yards. Eton stayed on the front foot and deservedly had a second when Marcel Aziamale hooked the ball in from a few yards. It was a different matter in the second half, however, as Hampton came out with real purpose and threw numbers forward. A free kick was awarded on edge of the box for the visitors which was expertly curled in to the bottom corner; 2-1 and game on. The remainder of the game became more open with Hampton piling forward and Eton looking to hit on the break. Chances came and went for both sides but Eton held on resolutely, typified by a fantastic save in the dying moments from Will Graves.

Highgate saw plenty of the ball in the first half but rarely troubled the ACS Cobham defence. A missed penalty on 15 minutes by Highgate added even more tension to the game. The breakthrough came after 25 minutes when George Pugh headed home a pacey cross from Blackshaw on the left. ACS Cobham threatened at set plays trying to capitalise on their height advantage but found the Highgate rear guard on form. The score line was doubled after 60 minutes when once again Pugh headed in at the far post from a left wing cross. ACS Cobham were given a lifeline with 15 minutes remaining when a back pass was picked up by the goalkeeper with ACS Cobham scoring from the resulting free kick. The last 15 minutes were tense for both teams but Highgate saw the game out. 

A very tight, competitive fixture between two well-matched sides was decided by two late goals from Harrow. Harrodian took the lead early on after a deflected shot from the edge of the area went past the despairing dive of Max Little in goal. The rest of the first half was a cagey affair, with chances for both sides and Harrodian went in at the break with a narrow lead. Harrow pressed forward in the second half and created a number of chances, including one miss over the bar from a yard out. Carlo Agostinelli grabbed the equaliser with 10 minutes to go, holding off the final defender to slip the ball under the body of the keeper. Harrow scored the winner in the final minutes of the game, with Christian Boland sprinting past the defender and striking a firm, low shot into the bottom corner.

Bradfield managed to edge past Wellington in a tense encounter that could have gone either way. Bradfield controlled the first half an hour but failed to break through a resolute Wellington defence. Wellington grew in confidence and took the lead from an excellent header with 20 minutes to play. Bradfield levelled the game through Jack Hodgkinson with just 5 minutes remaining of normal time. The away side then took the initiative in extra time with goals from Ethan Yueng and Ed Sideso. Wellington scored late on but it was not enough and Bradfield progressed into the 4th Round.

An even start to the game saw Latymer Upper and Millfield create some good chances but it was Latymer who scored first with a good header from a free-kick. Millfield then had a penalty saved just before the break. Millfield responded well and dominated large parts of the second half, having yet another penalty saved, but Latymer always looked dangerous on the break. The breakthrough for Millfield came with 15 minutes to go after some hesitation from the Latymer back line. Millfied scored early in the first period of extra time and, despite a rally from Latymer, and a shot from the last kick of the game that sailed inches over the bar, Millfield were able to see the game out.

A highly competitive match saw the Grammar School at Leeds start strongly in all aspects of the match at Whitgift but some good football by Whitgift saw them take back the initiative and score two great team goals as well as hit the crossbar. Whitgift continued to cut open the Leeds GS seemingly at will for the rest of the half scoring a further two goals and taking an unassailable 4-0 HT lead. Leeds GS responded well as a team in the second half and managed to score an away goal leaving Whitgift to progress 4-1.

With Alleyn's and Ardingly already having met once this season, both teams knew a little more than usual and the fixture promised to be a  cracker.  Ardingly started brightly and the only goal came early in the match, Calvin Kissi rising high above the defenders to meet Alex Nanni's delivery and putting the visitors were 1-0 to the good. For the rest of the half Alleyn's attacked repeatedly but a solid back 4 led by Josh Magrath managed to keep them out until half time. Sam Arbuckle was always a big threat for the home side and Alleyn's  had a succession of corners but each one was met with an Ardingly head.  The last quarter of the game was very tense, with Alleyns bombarding the Ardingly box with crosses, but despite this Ardingly's organised block stayed strong and the match finished 0-1 to Ardingly College, a great effort from both sides.

Repton took the lead after 8 minutes when a Parton effort was cruelly deflected over the Bede’s goalkeeper. The lead was doubled when Aliev curled the ball into the top corner after a cleared corner and Aliev struck again, this time from a free-kick, as Repton raced into a 3-0 lead. Bede’s always looked a danger going forward but it was Repton who grabbed a fourth after Raine volleyed in a cross just before half-time. The second half was much more even as Bede’s pulled a goal back, but not before Hickman had scored with a stunning overhead kick after good work from Buffin. The final goal saw Aliev secure his hat-trick as he crashed the ball home from close range.


Bradfield against Brighton started extremely tight with both teams having chances. Hodgkinson seized on a mistake from the Brighton defence to put Bradfield 1-0 up halfway through the first half. Brighton then had a sustained 10 minutes of pressure but Bradfield defended well to prevent the equaliser. Bradfield started the second half more in control and their dominance of the ball grew. Bradfield added four further goals through Yeung (2), Bray and Mullikas to seal the victory.

Both teams started off at a great pace and although Millfield were often in the ascendancy for long periods, Haberdasher’s Aske’s defended resolutely and were well organised. Millfield eventually broke the dead-lock scoring two goals in the first half which were scored by Martins and Goldsworthy. Millfield continued to press hard in the second half and scored a further five goals in the final fifteen minutes of the match against a tiring Haberdasher’s.

Harrodian started brightly, pressing Bury Grammar early on. After 15 minutes Harrodian, Hunt, Ghandour and Irani all had chances to open the scoring, however, the Bury GS goalkeeper was made several good saves to keep it at 0-0. Harrodian had a wakeup call when a long clearance from Bury caught out the Harodian defenders and left the Bury striker one on one with Little, Harrodian’s keeper, who stood his ground and made a fine save. The second half proved to be the same story until Ghandour scored after good work from Hunt down the left flank. Further goals from Hunt and a fine individual goal from Ghandour rounded up the scoring.

Bede’s controlled the possession from the outset but found Bolton very well organised and difficult to break down.  Just before half time Okojie broke the deadlock for Bede’s.  In the second half an early goal for Bede’s settled the tie and further goals were scored.  Bolton were always a threat from set pieces and got a deserved goal. 

Merchant Taylor's faced a strong Harrow side. Holmes opened the scoring for Harrow after a neat one-two with Boland. Boland then got his first of the game, picking up a deflected clearance. Adebayo then bundled one in from a yard out to put Harrow 3-0 up going into the break. After half-time, Harrow started strong and more than doubled their lead with goals from Boland (2), Davis and Agostinelli (3).

Royal Russell played some very attractive football and the incision of their attacking play was to be admired. Alleyn's were compact and resolute and managed to take the lead with a well worked counter attack to get their noses 1-0 in front at the break. Royal Russell began the second half determined and soon equalised. Royal Russell continued to probe, but Alleyn's stood firm taking the game into extra time. Alleyn's shaded the first period but Royal Russell piled forward in the second half and created numerous chances which on many a day would have seen them through. Alleyn's stood strong and with no further goals it was down to penalties. The Royal Russell keeper made a fine save from the opening kick and then stepped up to put Royal Russell in the driving seat. His Alleyn's opposite number replied in kind with a stunning stop. There were then a series of excellent penalties rendering both keepers helpless. Alleyn's captain Wood stepped up calmly with the final Alleyn's penalty of the initial five. As a tense crowd stood anticipating sudden death the Alleyn's keeper Rahman went low to his right and produced a fine save to see Alleyn's through.

Set plays proved to be the undoing of Manchester Grammar who trailed 2-0 to Highgate at the break. An excellent delivery into the box by Randall was met at the far post by Hopkins and 10 minutes later a corner from Verity went in off the far post. Highgate extended their lead 15 minutes into the second half when Randall hit the cross bar then in off the goal keeper. Manchester Grammar replied within 5 minutes and despite a spirited last 15 minutes they were unable to break through the resolute Highgate defence.   

Hampton had the better of the opening 10 minutes with several good chances which were kept out by a very resolute Charterhouse goal keeper. Charterhouse slowly got into the game and forced several corners one of which resulted in Chaterhouse taking a 1-0 lead. This seemed to spur Hampton on, after a period of play on the left Minshall equalised at the far post. The start of the second half was an even match. As the match progressed Hampton were able to keep the ball better which resulted in a clinical last 20 minutes Davis put Hampton ahead and further goals from Hanley and Joash saw them through 4-1 winners.

After a cagey start from both teams, Eton started to gain the upper hand midway through the first half after a spell of pressure from RGS Newcastle. A well worked goal with a smart finish from Waterworth, for Eton, broke the deadlock and a few minutes later Eton increased their lead with a rapid fire brace to take it to 3-0. A further goal before half time effectively sealed the contest. Both sides continued to work hard in the second half and with chances at both ends it was no surprise there were further goals and a final result 6-1.

Shrewsbury had the better start but were caught out by a quick Latymer Upper free kick. A defensive error allowed Latymer to take a two goal lead but Shrewsbury hit back to go 2-1. Towards the end of the half an excellent team goal saw Latymer add another goal. In the second half Latymer applied pressure and had soon doubled their goal tally. Shrewsbury managed to get a goal back but an excellent Latymer performance saw them run out 8-2 winners.

In blustery conditions on a difficult pitch, Repton raced into a 2-0 lead against Brooke House in the first 15 minutes with goals from Buffin and Williams. Williams then added Repton's third before half-time. Brooke House rallied in the second half but rarely looked like breaking the Repton back line as the visitors secured a comfortable 3-0 victory.

ACS Cobham started far too strongly for the City of London side. An early penalty was converted by Kamal. City could not deal with ACS’s aerial ability and further goals came from Cockerham, Bouzida and Erb. City finally woke and scored through Chataway. Another came early in the second half from an Radus free kick and it appeared to be game on. A good save from the ACS keeper then a hit of the woodwork was City’s last efforts. ACS finished off the game as it become wide open with goals from Harris and Kessel.

After a nervous 5 minutes the game started to settle and Wellington scored an early goal. This seemed to rally Kingston GS into game and they pulled a goal back within 10 minutes. As the first half came to a close both teams had their chances and had started to play some exciting football. The second half started very tight. However, Wellington took the lead from a long distance effort that beat the KGS keeper. KGS pushed for an equaliser but Wellington secured the victory with a well taken goal reacting first after the keeper had initially saved the shot.

A thrilling match in which the Whitgift made most of the running but found a resolute Lancing side. After being level throughout Whitgift took the lead with seven minutes to go. Lancing reacted and worked for their equaliser in the final minute to put the game into extra time. Extra time saw Whitgift regain their lead only for Lancing to once again react and equalise late on, resulting in penalties. Lancing only converted one of their penalties whilst Whitgift scored all three to put them into the next round

Dulwich had some early half chances to take the lead. Ardingly then settled and soon scored on the break through Nanni. They quickly doubled their lead through Tiley. In the second half Ardingly started strong with Nanni hitting a superb half volley from the edge of the box to make it 3-0.  The game then opened up for Ardingly and more goals followed with Nanni grabbing his hatrick. Credit to Dulwich who kept going to the end and played with great pride.

Grammar School at Leeds won the game with a convincing score line but Aldenham certainly had chances to have made the score line different. Leeds were clinical in the second half after a close first half which saw Leeds take the lead through an OG in the dying minutes of the first half. Aldenham had earlier hit the post and the bar. Leeds scored a second  midway through the second half and secured the win with a late third. 


Bury GS took the lead in the first half scoring from close range but ACS Hillingdon had the better of the second half and deservedly equalised. Following extra time, with both teams failing to score, the boys fate was to be decided on penalties. Bury confidently scored all their spot kicks and the Bury goalkeeper saved two penalties, putting them into the next round.

Truro took the lead in the first half with an excellent team goal, going into the break ahead. In the second half Latymer Upper came out determined, pushing Truro back and creating numerous chances. Latymer equalised with ten minutes to play. Extra-time proved demanding on both sides with many suffering from cramp. However, it was Latymer who want through courtesy of an own goal.

Whitgift and St. Columba's was a evenly matched game. However, Whitgift  managed to capitalise on their changes putting them at a two goal advantage going into half time. St Columba's pulled a goal back in the second half. This brought Whitgift to life who reacted well to score a further three goals. 

It took a little time for Eton to find their rhythm, but after a cross from the left found Spowers free on the back post to finish their confidence grew and Eton started to settle. Hurstpierpoint continued to press well and disrupt Eton but Waterworth found himself in the right position to tap home from a shot off the post.  Goals from Aziamale, Guy, Lee and King saw Eton safely through.

Wellington College came out on top in excellent game of football. Oswestry had the majority of the possession and were very impressive in their passing plays. However, four excellent goals on the counter attack from Wellington were enough to get them into the second round for the first time. 

Dulwich took the lead after the ball dropped in the box to Fallowfield. LVS Ascot replied five minutes later where a cross from wide found its way over the Dulwich keeper. Just before the break, Dulwich regained their lead through James Blakemore. In the second half Dulwich started brighter and pressed LVS Ascot back from the start. As the game opened up goals from Gleave, Tribe and two from Loynes saw Dulwich home to a comfortable victory.

Brighton and Kimbolton kicked off their cup run with an excellent affair. Brighton, on their home, ground played some excellent football and this showed by going 2-0 ahead in the first half. However, a well organised Kimbolton side fought back to 2-2 with ten minutes to go. A goal in the last five minutes by Brighton's striker lead to mass celebration as they secured victory.

Brentwood took an early lead after a crisp finish into the bottom corner. Harrow responded with 3 goals before half-time from Boland (2) and Holmes. Harrow extended their lead at the start of the second half with Adebayo scoring a volley at the back post. Brentwood played some good football and pressed well to score their second with a close range finish. The final goal came from the Harrow left back, Kenderdine-Davies, who struck a thunderbolt into the top corner from 40 yards out to finalise the score 5-2.

Harrodian started positively and produced some good football, Tonbridge were also very competitive and chances were few and far between. Harrodian opened the scoring when Ghandour latched onto a through ball and nicked it around Tonbridges keeper. The score remained the same until half time. Irani made it 2-0 five minutes into the second half, growing in confidence Harrodian went on to dominate the rest of the half. A second goal for Ghandourn and further goals from McGowan and Swire completed the scoring.

Shrewsbury came out 2-1 winners after extra time in a keenly fought contest against Winchester. Shrewsbury had the better of the early stages and gained a deserved lead through Brunskill. However, Shrewsbury found themselves on the back foot despite creating a number of chances on the counter attack. Winchester drew level mid-way through the second half and as the game moved into extra time Chilaka broke free to fire in the winner for Shrewsbury.

Two goals in either half, against Lingfield College, was enough to secure Bolton a place in the second round. Bowers and Glover opened the scoring before a brace in the second half from Udwadia settled a game.

Chigwell went 2-0 up after 10 miuntes from an excellent free kick and header. GS at Leeds reacted well scoring through Henry Kumwenda and equalising before half time through a well-placed header by Max Adler. In the second half Leeds took the lead after a smart finish from Oliver Pickering. Chigwell responded well to regained their lead within 2 minutes. Leeds did not give up and worked together to, once again, gain an equaliser through Adler, taking the game into extra time. Leeds took control in the second half of extra time when Kumwenda’s run into the box earned a penalty, which he converted. Leeds added another through Borlant to secure the victory.

A thrilling game saw Repton progress against a tough, well-organised Queen Ethelburga's side. A first half edged by Queen Ethelburga’s saw them take the lead through Hartley. Repton came back strongly in the second half and equalised through Killington, taking the game into extra time. With the game deep into extra time Cottis stepped up to strike home the winner for Repton in what was a pulsating cup tie.

Haberdashers had the better of the first half with Gale and Afeeva both going close, then Tokuta hit the post from 20 yards out. St Bede’s looked stronger as the half wore on but on the half hour mark a brilliant through ball from Faizeen, for Habs, found Miller which he calmly slotted home. St Bede’s came out much sharper and were unlucky not to score in a 15 minute spell where St. Bede’s controlled the game. In the dying minutes, Habs clinched the victory with a penalty that Miller confidently converted.

Lancing came out on top in a hard fought and entertaining encounter against Box Hill in Surrey. At half time, the game hung in the balance with Lancing holding a slender 1-0 lead. Box Hill had a number of good chances to equalise in the first period but failed to capitalise. It was Lancing however that produced a clinical second half to score 4 times without reply to run out 5-0 victors. 

RGS Newcastle opened the scoring in the first minute of the game and were on top for most of the first half. Forest equalised early in the second half and dominated play throughout. With 10 minutes to play, and the game opening up, RGS scored a second goal and managed to hang on till the final whistle to clinch the victory.

Manchester GS took the lead when a cross from Edmonds was bundled home at the far post by Shenton. MGS then created the next chance which brought an outstanding save from the Birkdale keeper. Birkdale nearly equalised before half time when a mistake in the home defence led to a one on one which MGS managed to scramble away. In the second half MGS managed to convert their chances and further goals from Kabanni, Whitley and Edmonds saw the home team win.

Charterhouse ran out winners in a well fought contest against King’s School, Chester. Goals from Porter (2) Gilbey and Tertychnyy. 

An organised defensive shape and threat on the counter from St. John’s Leatherhead kept Alleyn’s on their toes. The game was poised 0-0 at half time. Alleyn’s passed with greater fluency in the second half and created numerous chances. It took a moment of magic from Sam Arbuckle to break the deadlock and put Alleyn’s ahead. Alleyn’s progress with a 1-0 victory but St John’s emerge with great credit for their disciplined display.

Bede's started the game at an impressive pace and were soon ahead with some excellent passing combinations racing to a 2-0 lead in the first five minutes. RGS Guildford then came back, hitting the bar before Bede's took full control, scoring a third and then going in to the break with a 5-0 lead. RGS worked hard to contain the home team in the second half but Bede's continued to be clinical in front of goal, doubling their score to secure victory and advance comfortably.

Bradfield started their ISFA campaign with a controlled display vs KES Witley. Witley kept the Bradfield attacks at bay for twenty minutes but Tom Mulikas broke the deadlock soon after, putting Bradfield ahead. Jack Hodgkinson doubled this lead soon after. Bradfield continued their possession football into the second half but KES remained resolute. Bradfield completed the victory with two more goals towards the end of the game from Joel Valentin and Ed Sideso.

After a cagey start from both Hampton and Westminster, Hampton’s pressure got its reward with a clinical strike from the edge of the box from Rhodes. This settled Hampton who were soon two up after a slick move from the left which was finished by A Minshall. Westminster came out strong in the second half and forced several important saves from the Hampton goalkeeper. Minshall, for Hampton, scored with five minutes to go to secure a hard fought 3-0 victory. 

City of London enjoyed the majority of possession in the first half but one chance was all that Bedford Modern needed as Sam Gristwood took the lead for the visitors. The second half continued in similar fashion as the Bedford Modern keeper kept out the best of the City chances. The clinical away team once again scored against the run of play through Eden Camacho to make it 0-2. With twenty minutes to go, City finally found their shooting boots with goals from Marco Lautier, Alex Landell Mills, Will Chataway, Duro Adebayo and Ethan Radus to secure the victory. 

A tense game between John Lyon and Aldenham was settled in the last few minutes of extra time when Aldenham’s Theo Vickeridge hit home. Vickeridge had earlier given Aldenham the lead before John Lyon equalised. Aldenham missed a penalty late on to win the match before the game went in extra-time. 

Highgate started slow against a well organised and spirited Bristol GS defence. The break-through for Highgate came after 20 minutes with further goals in quick succession. Bristol had their chances but were denied by solid goal keeping. With the score line at 5-1 going into the break the second half became academic and with 2 late goals this secured a comfortable victory for the Highgate 1st XI.

ACS Cobham v. Wolverhampton GS
Brooke House v. Berkhamsted 
Grange v. Royal Russell

Ibstock Place v. Ardingly
Oldham Hulme v. Kingston GS
University College School v. Millfield


Truro started the game well and could have been three up but it was Taunton who broke away to go ahead. Truro continued to press but some good goal keeping and missed opportunities kept Taunton in front until the 34th minute when Truro finished a good move. Truro failed to play the same quality of football in the second half but did take their opportunities to go 4-1 up. Taunton were unlucky not to pull one back when the ball hit the woodwork.

Wellington College continued their strong start to the season with comprehensive victory over Canford. With Wellington leading 4-0 at half time, Canford came back fighting in the second half and had several opportunities to close the deficit, but only managed to capitalise on one opportunity.

Oswestry started the game well, against Stockport GS, and settled nerves by taking an early 2-0 lead courtesy of a Lloyd Evans brace. Stockport rallied and put pressure on the Oswestry defence with an effective direct style of play. A goal on the strike of half-time made it 3-0 at the break. The 2nd half was all Oswestry as they began to dominate possession. The goals kept coming with the final score being 7-0. 

Haberdashers’ Aske’s started brightly playing some neat passing football, but excellent defending by Bedales kept clear chances to a minimum. Habs started to dominate possession in midfield as the half progressed and good work from Kohler created an opening for Afeeva to open the scoring. A neat finish just before half time from Gale made it 2-0. Bedales started the second half strong but Habs defence stood firm. Chances were missed at both ends as the game became stretched but goals from Tokuta and Afeeva’s second clinched the victory for Haberdashers.

Harrodian quickly went two up in a rather one-sided start but then Radnor rallied and kept the score line static for some time. However, the resistance was broken and the goals started to flow, resulting in Harrodian running out 13-0 winners.

RGS Worcester and Box Hill was an even encounter with both teams a little tentative in the first half resulting in a goalless first half.  Box Hill started the second half much stronger and benefited from a fortuitous ricochet to secure the opening goal. The second soon followed and although RGS intensified their approach Box Hill soaked up sufficient pressure to keep the oppositions efforts to a minimum.
