Captain, Arthur Turner, wrote

"After a sublime first round win against Bedford Modern,  we travelled to surrey to play St John's Leatherhead. Some wasted chances from the away side left the game at 0-0 with 10 minutes to play in the first half. Then, 3 quickfire goals in 5 minutes from Joel Field, Jonathan Udeh and Jofie Philpott, had the score 3-0 at half time in our favour. The second half began as the first half ended. 5 minutes in, Oliver Rudling climbed high and powered a header past the Leatherhead keeper to put us 4 ahead. Ryan Gray’s tenacity to run in behind and add two goals late on secured a comfortable win of 6-0 to the good. The team now move onto the third round to face Repton, making Norwich School history."

Congratulations to the team and also to Oliver Rudling, who was named Man of The Match.
