U16 defeat Inner London

Inner London 1-2 Middlesex

SEESFA LC Hill Trophy

Dawid ChiomanowiczMiddlesex Schools' FA's Under-16 squad secured their first win of the season in the LC Hill Trophy with a hard-fought win away to Inner London.

The Seaxes travelled with a weakened squad, and were missing five players. The absentees included Henry Marku, who was on trial at AFC Wimbledon. The squad reshuffle resulted in a call-up for Dawid Chiomanowicz of Alec Read Academy (pictured), who usually plays for the Under-15 Representative side and performed admirably.

Middlesex started the game strongly, dominating possession and creating early opportunities but did not take their chances, meaning that the first half ended goalless. 

The second half started with Inner London taking the lead when they played a ball over the top that caught out the defence, leaving a forward able to score with a neat finish at the near post.

Middlesex were not phased and continued to dominate possession, as well as playing some great football in tight areas. Middlesex soon made this pay off when some great work down the left from Dylan Singh set up Rawn Seale to level the scores.

The game continued in the same vein and Middlesex went ahead with ten minutes remaining, thanks to another great finish by Seale to seal his brace.

SEESFA GE Knowles Trophy

The Under-14 Representative Team fielded a much-changed starting XI for their fixture away to Inner London; late withdrawals due to illness not helping the Seaxes' cause ahead of this always keenly-contested match.

The home side took advantage of Middlesex's unfamiliar line up and swept into a five-goal advantage within 24 minutes. However, by the end of the first half, the visitors were beginning to look much stronger. Five minutes before the interval, Middlesex reduced the deficit with Felix Amoah scoring from a corner, and Middlesex were unfortunate not to score again with both Kyle Oyutode Wilson and Amoah seeing their efforts go wide.

The second half was far more evenly contested and against the run of play Inner London extended their lead when a shot from just inside the Middlesex penalty area was controversially adjudged to have crossed the line by assistant referee. Dominic D’Souza scored Middlesex’s second to make the final score 6-2, taking a pass from Remel Larwood on the right wing before cutting inside and scoring just inside the left hand post.
