First-Round Victory in ISFA Cup

The 1st XI got off to a fantastic start on their debut appearance in the ISFA National Cup under floodlights on Tuesday 16 September, with a comprehensive victory over St Edmund’s.

Skipper for the evening Archie Breakspear opened the scoring from a corner by Dimil Patel after just five minutes of play. The excited crowd did not have to wait long for a second goal, with Ross MacFarlane finishing off a cross by James Long after a great counter-attacking move down the right wing. To follow on, Patel struck a cracking half-volley to add another notch to the score sheet, before Ed Stait made it 4-0 to St John’s at half time with a 25-yard strike into the bottom corner.

In the second half, St John’s continued to play some excellent football and just two minutes after the restart, MacFarlane grabbed his second goal of the night. St Edmund’s pulled a goal back after 50 minutes of play, but the triumph for St John’s continued. Stait’s second goal of the match, and two by the electric Adam Holley saw the final score standing at a victorious 8-1.

This was a great team performance from all 14 boys involved. We now eagerly await the second round draw of the cup, which should be made at the end of next week.
