Sports Academy manager Beth Harris full of praise for talented group of players after 11th win of the campaign

NewVic students were celebrating last week after finally claiming the London Cat 3B title with a 4-1 victory over Barking & Dagenham

Goals from Jonathan Kitiki-Mwamba, Jordon Peart, Mussa Jamanca and Robertson Morais settled the clash last Wednesday (March 22).

NewVic managed to open the scoring after quarter of an hour, as captain Kitiki-Mwamba headed home.

The impressive Peart earned his team a penalty soon after with a tricky run down the wing and finished the spot-kick himself.

Dagenham pulled one back from a free kick to after some poor defending by NewVic, but it only kicked the Plaistow College back into gear.

Jamanca made it 3-1 before the break with a fine volley after more good play by Peart.

NewVic remained professional after half time, as they looked to add to their tally and not lose focus at the back.

Morais managed to wrap up the scoring with a fine finish to spark wild celebrations come the full time whistle from the talented youngsters.

Beth Harris, Sports Academy manager, was full of praise for the squad, which will be broken up next year with most going off to university or work.

said: “This squad of players will go down in NewVic history as having 11 wins and just one loss for the entire 2016/17 season.”
