Football Cup Update
Despite putting on a spirited display at home, Hampton’s U14B team lost out to a strong Carshalton Boys Sports College side in the quarter-finals of the English Schools Football Association Cup. Having gone 2-0 down to a couple of skilful scores, a Carshalton free kick meant Hampton trailed 3-0 at the interval. Despite an attacking, vastly improved second half performance, Hampton could only score once, and hence missed out on a national semi-final tie.
The U18s and U15s also put on superb displays of football this week in their Independent Schools Football Association semi-final encounters. The younger boys were knocked out on penalties by a strong Whitgift School side and the 1st XI missed out on a place in their final after losing 1-0 to Royal Russell School.
