English Counties Cup: Middlesex under-14s 4 Norfolk under-14s 1
Middlesex boys’ under-14 football team marched into the English Counties Cup quarter-finals with a 4-1 win at home to Norfolk.
Around a quarter of an hour into the match, the hosts opened the scoring when Henry Okenia volleyed home a cross by Reiss Walker.
On the stroke of half time, though, Middlesex suffered a set back as Norfolk drew level to send the sides into the interval locked at 1-1.
Ervis Sherrniku fired the home team back in front 20 minutes in the second half, though, when latching onto a loose ball in the box.
Felix Frimpong then added a third for Middlesex when producing a fine lob over the Norfolk keeper.
Jamie Sacopon completed the scoring with his first goal of the season to cap a comfortable win for the hosts, who visit Hampshire in the next round.
“This was a great all round team performance. The boys can go all the way to the finals if the continue to perform in such a professional manner,” said manager Dean Sylvester.
