Young stars impress ahead of National Cup clash with St Albans

Newham District under-15s warmed up for their National Cup tie against St Albans with a convincing 4-2 victory over Essex County.

Essex raced into the lead after a mishap at the back, but Newham responded quickly with a goal from Jyotirmoy Paul of Brampton Manor Academy.

The second half proved to be a one-sided affair as Langdon Academy student Paul Sagoe stepped up his game and dispatched two fantastic goals.

Essex did pull a goal back, but this proved to be nothing more than a mere consolation strike.

It was another Brampton Manor academy student, Joshua Junaid, who put the icing on the cake, pouncing on the rebound after Sagoe’s attempt on goal.

After the game, Newham coach Terry Bobie was quick to praise the performances of his centre-backs Kasim Adioo and Ebube Agu.

“The pair were instrumental in ensuring the team left the field of play with a positive result today!” said Bobie.

“They competed extremely well and deserve to be recognised for their outstanding efforts and commitment to their defensive duties.

“We now travel to St Albans in the third round of the National Cup and the boys and I are determined to bring the national trophy home to Newham!”

Newham: Tony Shaw, Edino Vaz (both Royal Docks), Desharn Felix (Cumberland), Junior Rene (Tunmarsh PRU) , Kasim Aidoo, Jamal Duada, Ebube Agu (all St Bonaventure’s), Abubakar Sharif, Sergio Tavares (both Lister Community School), Matthew Ughelumba (Rokeby), Paul Sagoe (Langdon) Mason Deegan, Jyotirmoy Paul, Jonathan Junaid (all Brampton Manor Academy).
