SEASON 2015-16

After a superb 1st XI competition, the final took place on Wednesday 23rd March between Forest and Latymer Upper at Wealdstone FC.  In a tight and very competitive match, the game really could have gone either way.  In the first half, Latymer edged the play and scored a very well worked goal 10 minutes before the break. Forest came out strongly in the second half with a fine passing move resulting in Jake Moss firing narrowly wide from 5 yards. The game remained tight with Forest controlling possession but Latymer looking dangerous on the break but the key moment then came in the 89th minute when Forest's Kasey Cummings met the end of a Jake Moss free kick and equalised taking the match straight to penalties.  Forest's goalkeeper Andreas Loizou was the hero saving two penalties and giving Forest a 4-2 victory and the 1st XI London Independent Schools' Cup for 2015/16.

Forest's 1st XI coach and Head of Football Michael Broughton added "It's a fantastic achievement and a fitting end for captain Callum Thomson, vice captain Sam Chinegwundoh and fellow upper sixth players Charlie Elson, Callum Daniels, Tayo Felstead, James Harvey and Will Taylor".  

Many thanks go to all the schools that entered this years' 1st XI Cup and made it such a successful and competitive tournament.

The final of the 2nd XI cup was played at Sutton United’s Borough Sports Ground on Tuesday 10th May. An impressive crowd, bolstered by locals youngsters towards the end of the match, watched as both teams tried to pass the ball around. The long lay-off since the semi-finals seemed to have affected a number of players’ fitness and indeed Tonbridge took the lead when Giles King found himself unmarked at the far post to volley home from Freddie Hutchins’ cross. The game then settled into an end to end affair with both keepers looking in good form. The second goal looked like being crucial and it came for Tonbridge from the penalty spot through Joe Clayton following shirt pulling at a set-piece. As players on both teams tired, space began to open up and Charlie Spawforth was able to capitalise, running in behind the Dulwich defence to score twice in the second half to give Tonbridge a very flattering 4 – 0 victory in what was a very evenly contested affair.
