The Under-16 Representative Team were unable to conclude a challenging season by winning the South-East England Schools’ FA Championship after suffering defeat in the LC Hill Trophy Final.
Having finished at the top of the Group 1 Table by virtue of victories over Sussex (3-2), Inner London (3-0), Surrey (3-2) and Buckinghamshire (4-3), Middlesex then defeated Group 2 runners-up Hertfordshire 5-2 at Ashford Town (Middlesex) FC to secure their place in the Final against old rivals Kent, who had enjoyed a 4-3 victory over Middlesex during the League phase of competition.
In the decider at the Watford FC Training Ground, both teams started well and there was nothing to separate the sides in the first twenty minutes. If anything, Middlesex had the slight edge in possession, yet it was Kent who took the lead through Middlesex defenders not picking players up, which led to the goalkeeper coming out to try and cover, leaving the goal open.
