U18s are Champions

Matthew Winter - 2nd May 2018
The U18s clinched the Sportswik Youth League in dramatic fashion coming from 2-0 down away to second placed Met Police to gain the point needed to win their first title in 3 seasons.

After a grueling set of fixtures which have seen the U18s play 4 games in 9 days and with key players missing the Cards found themselves 2 behind early in the second half. But top goalscorer Ross Murdoch halved the deficit minutes later before again firing past the keeper to level it up.

The Cards stood strong as their hosts tried to find a winning goal to keep the title race alive and when the final whistle went there where scenes of both celebration and relief.

The U18s add the League title to the Surrey FA Midweek Floodlit Cup which they won by beating the same opposition a fortnight ago and still have another oppotunity of further silverware as they enter the 'Champions of Champions' Tournament against the 3 other division winners.

Arnold, Thompson, Choules (C), Isaacs, Cooke, Stillwell (Marchant), Randall, Cook (Mark), Montague, Jacob (Waters), Murdoch
