Dulwich College U10 Football Tournament

Dulwich College U10 Football Tournament

It was a great pleasure to welcome 24 teams and over 250 Year 5 players to this year’s tournament, held at Dulwich College on 3 October.

It was a spectacular occasion with the Barry buildings providing the perfect backdrop. The players came from both Primary and Prep schools, some local and others from much further afield. All gave a great account of themselves on the field but, most importantly, displayed a wonderfully positive and sporting spirit.

A highly competitive event and congratulations to the four Cup Semi-Finalists: Oakfield, Dulwich Prep London, Rosendale and Thomas’ Clapham. Both Semi-finals were won on penalties, a trend that extended to the final, where Rosendale won a very tight match against Oakfield (coached by OA Joshua Lawrence). The Plate competition was equally competitive and congratulations to the four teams that qualified for the later stages: Dulwich College, Wetherby Prep, Cothill and St Cyprian’s. Again, the standard was impressive and congratulations to Wetherby Prep who were victorious.

U10 Football Tournament winners

Of course we must congratulate the winners but it really should be emphasised just how fantastic all the players and teams were. A thoroughly enjoyable day and our thanks to everyone involved!

ISFA U11 winning team

ISFA U11 winning team

On Thursday 5 October the U11 squad travelled to Alleyn's School to play in the ISFA seven-a-side London regional tournament. 17 teams entered the tournament with the teams being split into 3 groups.

Dulwich in Group B, started the day against the hosts Alleyn's. After a nervy beginning Dulwich began to try to play the attacking passing football they have been working on in training. As the game went on, both team were evenly matched with Dulwich creating more chances but struggling to find the back of the net. After Alleyn's hit the Dulwich crossbar, the boys sprang into action and after a well worked throw Max popped up on the left and his cross come shot found its way over the keeper into the far corner of the net. Dulwich held firm in the final minutes to win their first group game 1-0.

In their second group game the boys Dulwich faced Notting Hill Prep. After a strong start Dulwich pressed high and good work from Matteo to win the ball back before finding a pass to Noah, who volleyed the ball into the top corner to put Dulwich 1-0 up. In the second half a fast counter attack from Alessandro down the right wing after a lay off from Tristan, led to Alessandro beating his defender before crossing low and hard to the front post from Tristan who carried on his run to tap it in to double Dulwich's advantage. As the final whistle blew Dulwich deserved their 2-0 win.

Kings College Wimbledon were Dulwich opponents in the next group game. In an even contest both teams created half chances but neither could take the upper hand to change the score. As the game drew on both teams' defences held firm and a special effort from the Dulwich defence Max, Saul and Will ensure the score remained 0-0 at full time.

In their fourth group game, Dulwich faced Arnold House the other favoured team in their group. Dulwich controlled possession in the first half as Arnold House started slowly and took advantage after good work from Sam who crossed the ball and found Matteo at the back post to head home, 1-0. Dulwich extended their lead shortly after with Sam pouncing on a loose ball in midfield and shooting first time with a shot that surprised the Arnold House keeper sneaking into the bottom corner. Dulwich should have then killed off the game creating a number of clear chances but they could not manage to score a third. As Arnold House grew into the game, they began to create chances as the pressure mounted especially from their long throw ins. From one of these throw ins, Arnold House scored to make the score 2-1 with minutes remaining. As they pushed to level the game, Dulwich stood firm in defence with Henry making two fantastic save and the rest of the boys working extremely hard to hold on to win the game 2-1.

In their final group game the boys knew a win would see them through to the knockout stages top of the group. With the added motivation the Dulwich boys pressed Gatehouse from the first whistle, dominating the possession and territory. Creating lots of chances the boys became more confident and began to pass the ball around trying to find space in the Gatehouse half. From a corner Max rose highest and attacked the ball, sending it flying into the ball of the net for Dulwich to take the lead. As the game progressed Dulwich looked the most likely to score again and with minutes remaining Tristan attacked the ball in the box and fired home to leave the score 2-0 to Dulwich.

With the top two in each group and the best two third place teams making up the knockout stages, Dulwich having won four and drawing one of their five games, scoring seven and conceding only one goal, qualified top of their Group. In the quarter final they faced Eaton House. Re-energised the Dulwich boys went out to prove they deserved their place in the final stages. They worked extremely hard and took the lead late on in the first half with Tristan firing home a rocket from the by-line which snuck in the near post past the keeper. In the second half Dulwich looked to press home their advantage and on the break the ball was played forward to Noah who beat a defender and fired another shot past the keeper into the top corner to make it 2-0. Another strike from Noah added a third late on sending Dulwich into the semi-finals with a 3-0 win.

In the semi-final Dulwich were up against Hereward House. Noah broke the deadlock in the first half with a strong shot that the keeper could only parry into the corner. A Tristan free kick from the edge of the box doubled the Dulwich lead as he fired low and hard across the keeper into the far corner. The victory was secured early in the second half as Noah again finished well on the break sliding the ball past the keeper into the far corner. Another strong performance as the boys battled hard and showed a real determination to reach the final.

In the final, Dulwich faced Thomas' Battersea. After an end to end start, Thomas' took the lead with their left winger firing home at the near post. But Dulwich did not give up and battled back into the game and on a breakaway through midfielder Tristan played the ball to Noah who passed onto Matteo who finished across the keeper to tie up the game. Minutes later Dulwich pressed high and stole the ball off Thomas' defence with Sam firing home to the cheers from the fans (parents) on the side. At half time the boys knew they had something to hold onto with only six minutes left in the tournament. Thomas' pressed to try and equalise but Dulwich defence of Henry, Saul and Max held firm. On another counter attack Noah chased hard beating the defender to the ball and poking it home across the keeper to make it 3-1. The confidence was flowing and again a ball played forward led to Noah winning the ball of the Thomas' defence before finishing to make it 4-1. Dulwich then held firm for the final minutes capping their best performance with a 4-1 win.​

A fantastic achievement for the boys who improved as the day progressed to be crowned the ISFA London Regional Seven-a-side Champions 2017-18. The boys will now travel to the ISFA National seven-a-side finals at St George's Park, the home of English Football and where the England national team train on Tuesday 23 April.

Well done to all boys who took part.

The U9s Lift the Cup: Eaton Square School 6-a-side Football Tournament

U9 Football Success

On Monday 9 October the U9 A and B teams attended the Eaton Square School 6-a-side Tournament at Battersea Park. The A team tournament was split into three groups of 6 teams, with the B team tournament consisting of two groups of 4.

The A team played some attractive attacking football and in each game their performance increased. All of the boys looked to learn in each game and progressed throughout the day. Strong group game performances saw the boys reach the playoff finals remaining unbeaten and having won every game they played.

Group Results:
Vs Dolphin School – Won 3-1
Vs Thomas’ Fulham – Won 7-2
Vs Knightsbridge School – Won 4-0
Vs Orchard House School – Won 7-2
Vs Westminster Under School – Won 4-1

1st Place Playoff Results:
Vs Hornsby House – Won 3-1
Vs Newton Prep – Won 5-0

The A team qualified for the 1st place playoff with the two other group winners Hornsby House and Newton Prep. In their first playoff game the boys pressed and won the ball off of Hornsby House high up the pitch and were clinical in front of goal scored two goals early on. As the game settled down both sides scored one each to leave the final score at 3-1 to Dulwich. In their final playoff game the boys knew another victory would see them crowned champions and they went out immediately and played at a quick pace looking to win the ball and play forward whenever possible. This worked and once again the Dulwich boys were confident in front of goal scoring five goals without reply. These victories meant that over the whole tournament the Dulwich A team scored an impressive 33 goals and conceded only 7 and were deservedly crowned champions.

The B team got better as the day went on, understanding how to move the ball down the pitch gaining more and more success in each game. A fantastic final group game performance saw the boys draw with Hurlingham who had won both of their previous games. The boys showed a high level of skill and determination to take the lead and were only just pegged back in the final stages. It was brilliant to see the B team players start to use more positional play and increase their game understanding as they grew in confidence throughout the tournament.

Group Results:
Vs Eaton House The Manor – Drew 0-0
Vs Westminster Under School – Lost 0-1
Vs Hurlingham School – Drew 1-1.

The B team finished 3rd in their group missing out on qualification to the knockout stages with the top two from each group progressing.

Well done to all Year 4 boys who represented the college. It was fantastic to see the boys all progress throughout the day and put in better performances in every game they played.
