Junior Friendly Football Match, KO: 4.00pm, 06/05/2015
Brondesbury College proved they were a team not to be underestimated after achieving a huge 8-0 victory against North London’s, Ark Academy.
After recent fixtures, Brondesbury College were yet to win their first game in a friendly football match against local schools around the borough. After previously losing heavily to Capital City, the boys had marched onwards to perform at King Fahad Academy. After being down, 3-1, the boys got their heads back in the game and levelled the score, including a header from the smallest member of the team, Rahail Kader.
With rumours spreading across the team about Ark Academy’s class players and recent impressive results, the coach’s expectations were only for the team to perform at their best.
Uwais Shahid requested he be put in captaincy position and he showed amazing flair. Leading his team onto the field, BCB began dominating early in the game, attempting a number of shots, both on and off target. Ark Academy seemed to hold off the attack very well, with a strong defence, and definite advantage at the back.
After half-time the score was still 0-0 but BCB remained determined to get the goal they deserved. It wasn’t long before Ahmed Sheriff (top goal scorer this season) at an opportune moment, buried the ball in the back of the net.
The boys found their rhythm as a team, scoring a further 7 goals before the match was finally over. Adil Yahie was the top scorer, taking 4 goals, while Ahmed Sheriff finished with a hat trick. Uwais Shahid proved a worthy captain, not only leading his team to an astonishing victory, but also taking home a well deserved goal.
The new goalkeeper Shahir Amin was supported by a solid defence, Mohammad Khawaja, Abdul Mueed Qureshi and new player to the team Abdullah Hannan who excelled even his own expectations.
Brondesbury College Coach Asad Fazil:
“It was a frustrating first half for the team, because the other team were not allowing us to penetrate their defence, but it didn’t take long for our boys to finally see the back of the net. It was a well deserved win and I am sure if they continue to work hard and perform as they did today, they’ll be entering a school league within no time. Maybe even come out top of the league, who knows, but well done to the team”
