Clapton FC London U18 Champions

Sunday 5th May saw two teams from the Eastern Junior Alliance League battled it out for the Under 18 London FA Sunday Cup.

League winners Ryan FC were stunned by 2 first-half goals from Harry Gostling, as Clapton FC’s high intensity game prevented them from playing their normal game.

The turning point of the whole game was probably when Ryan missed a penalty just before half-time, as they had started to dominate the game. 

A goal not long after the start of the second-half saw Ryan take more heart from the game but a brilliant goal from Ton’s captain, Joe Gent (pictured above), settled nerves again. 

A handling error from Jay Williams in the Clapton goal saw Ryan get back to 3-2 but Clapton were able to see the game out with some brilliant defending, especially from Man of the Match John Georgiou.

Congratulations to Clapton FC for winning the London FA Under 18 Sunday Cup 2012-13.
