Milbourne Win U13 Surrey Plate Competition

The Milbourne U13 team were buzzing after the 6-1 home win against Cumnor House in the Semi-Final of the Surrey Plate Competition. This win guaranteed a 9.30am Plate Final against Thomas’s, Battersea on Saturday 23rd November.

A sustained period of Milbourne pressure came to nothing, but on 15 minutes the ball was passed down the line for Ben to chase and cross into the box for Ben A to scramble home a goal for a 1-0 lead. Thomas’s then responded , continuously playing intricate passes, and after a period of Milbourne being held in their box, Thomas’s scored only for it to be disallowed by the linesman – a let off for Milbourne.

Half-time then came with our defence cancelling out their attack for the vast majority of the last 10 minutes of play. After half-time we came out raring to go and overpowered our opponents for the first 10 minutes and managed to secure a second goal from Felix – his first of two. Thomas’s once again responded and slotted away a penalty. Felix then took the game away from the opposing team with a beautiful top corner finish. Realising our position, we defended well to the final whistle. Cue the celebrations! A tremendous achievement for the team and huge congratulations to all involved this season – a wonderful way to end a great campaign.
