Harefield Academy history was made when our U18 1st team played in the FA Youth Cup!
Through our fantastic partnership with Harrow Borough FC The Harefield Academy U18 1st team played their first game of the 2015.16 season - in the preliminary round of the FA Youth Cup.
Playing Staines Town FC in a thrilling match, it was many of the players' first match for Harrow Borough FC and for some their first match at The Harefield Academy. Staines Town took the lead with a great run from their number 10 but Kieron Noel replied with the equaliser. The match was end to end and had a fantastic atmosphere.
It took some time for us to find a rhythm having not played together before. Lenny Farhall took the lead with a great goal and we held the lead till the 84th minute. Staines equalised and extra time loomed.
It was a stunning break away goal from new student Jae-Ru that gave us a 3-2 win. Congratulations to the whole team and head coach Phil Gridelet. Thank you to Harrow Borough FC for a fantastic partnership and hosting the match.
