RUSHCROFT FOOTBALL ACADEMY COLLEGES COUNTY TROPHY U19 CHAMPIONS
On Friday 13th May Rushcroft played in the Bryon Coomer Under 19s Colleges Trophy Final against Shenfield High School at Brentwood Town Football Club.
The game kicked off at a frantic pace with Rushcroft going very close to scoring in the opening 2 minutes. The game settled down into a pattern with Rushcroft dominating possession and Shenfield looking to ‘hIt’ us on the counter attack.
We were 2-0 up after 30 minutes thanks to some great build up play, with Oshun Lewis scoring both goals. Shenfield then scored through a penalty to make the score 2-1 at half time.
Rushcroft continued to dictate play in the second half and Lewis Grant made the game safe with a well worked move leading to a clinical finish. The final score was 3-1.
The players/students have represented the school really well throughout the competition and thoroughly deserved this win.
