Brent U15s won 2-1 at South London to reach the semi-final of the London Schools FA Corinthian Shield Cup.

They needed to come from behind to do it but two goals from Mason Spencer set up a last-four clash with Newham on March 25.

South London started the first half strongly and almost took an early lead when they hit the post after just two minutes.

Spencer had Brent’s first effort on the South London goal but his header cleared the crossbar before Dominic D’Souza saw his effort well saved when through on goal.

Brent hit the woodwork themselves when William Ribeiro’s headed effort from a corner rattled the crossbar.

South London almost scored early in the second half but Alan Kochanowicz in the Brent goal saved brilliantly with his legs.

With the game now wide open and both sides attacking at will, it was South London who took the lead in the 59th minute when the ball was not cleared by the Brent defence and they scored with a well-placed shot from just outside the penalty area.

Kochanowicz prevented South London from extending their lead with another excellent save as South London looked for their second goal.

But it was Brent who scored next with Spencer smashing a free-kick from around 25 yards int othe roof of the net.

They almost scored again two minutes later but Kahlil Francis struck the bar.

Another free-kick saw Spencer hit the woodwork a third time but the ball rebounded back to him and he made no mistake with the second shot, although the goalkeeper did get his hands to it.

In the final minute South London almost equalised but Brent held on to go through.

Management duo Keith Young and William Wright were delighted and said: “The belief in the players was absolutely fantastic. We lost to South London in the English School’s Cup but this time round things were much tighter.”

On Monday it dawned on me it was the FA Cup Final this Saturday. As a long-standing Arsenal season ticket holder who will be at Wembley I started to get excited about the game after a long season, and was already reliving the high and lows of every final in the competition that I’ve been to.
