Cavendish School first team storm through to the County Cup final


The Cavendish School first XI thrashed Parmiters School 5-1 to book their place in the U18 County Cup final.

Cavendish came out of the blocks fast with John Edey striking first to break the deadlock after five minutes.

It did not take Cavendish long to double their lead, with Matt Bateman showing real strength and determination to battle free before beating the keeper with a low left-footed strike.

Parmiters were struggling to deal with Cavendish and a well-worked corner fell to Bateman who fired into the top corner to make it 3-0.

Cavendish continued to dominate in the second half and a defensive mistake put Edey through again. He rounded the keeper and kept his composure to slot the ball home for 4-0.

Parmiters pulled a goal back, but Cavendish completed the scoring when George Biggadike pulled the ball back to Kai Lewis who fired in to wrap up the win.

Meanwhile, the Cavendish Year 8 side will also be making a cup final appearance after beating Kings Langley School 2-0 in the District Cup semi-finals.
