Brent U12 Boys 0-0 Basildon U12

after extra time; Basildon won 5-3 on penalties

During the first half of this London Cup tie, both teams cancelled out each other. There were not many chances and the game developed into something of a midfield battle.

In the second half, the game opened up although both goalkeepers were in good form and the respective defences were resolute.

Extra time continued in a similar vein and the tie went to penalties. Basildon were flawless from the spot, which took them into the next round.

Coach Michel Farrell said: “The boys did really well and worked extremely hard. It would be hard to pick a man of the match as all the boys battled hard and did extremely well.”
