Birmingham Primary Schools’ FA Autumn Shield

Goals: Mako x 2 , Hashim, Mason, Zaire and Ben
After navigating their way through the earlier rounds and past South Birmingham and Harborne, the under 10s squared up against Sutton Coldfield in the final of the BPSFA Autumn Shield.
The Royals took an early lead in the tie, although this did not throw The Ton boys off course as they quickly restored parity. At 1-1, Sutton continued to create chances, only to find Hayden in stubborn form in the Erdington goal. With Mako a constant threat, The Ton took the lead for the first time in the final, following a swift break up the pitch. From hereon, it was all Erdington and a third goal soon arrived following a rasping drive from Ben.
At 3-1, the game had swung in the favour of The Ton and further goals from Zaire, Mason and a second Mako goal ensured the silverware came home to B24 in emphatic fashion. It really was a dominant display from the boys in black and the first trophy of the season was nothing more than they deserved.
A breathtaking performance and one to be mightily proud of!
Well done boys!
Up The Ton!
