The SAL representative team defeated the Thames Valley Premier League 4 - 0 yesterday (28 Sep) to progress to the last 16 of the FA Inter-League Cup. Two quick-fire first half goals from Owen Bradley (Alleyn Old Boys) then Josh Thompson (Old Owens) from the penalty spot gave the SAL a comfortable half-time lead. Thompson then slid in the third early in the second half before Lee Raji (Polytechnic) rounded off a convincing performance with a lovely spin finish to make it 4-0.
The next round sees the team away to the Essex & Suffolk Border League in a tie which is due to be played by 29 November. The ESBL defeated the Southern Combination (former Sussex County) League 1-0 at Harwich & Parkeston, a former SAL member.
Elsewhere, our AFA colleagues at the Amateur Football Combination progress in a 2-1 win against the Essex Olympian League and will host the Jersey Combination in the next round.
