Langley Senior School's boys' football team went to West Bromwich Albion's stadium, The Hawthorns, to play in the U-15 Small Schools National Cup Final against De La Salle Academy from Liverpool.

After conceding an early goal, the players responded well and by half-time they were on top, beginning to create chances.

The equalising goal came early in the second half, Sol Alidor-Hamilton with a searching switch of play leading to good work from Keyni Mills down the right, cutting back for Ruben Shakpoke to slot home calmly.

The same player later scored again to put the team 2-1 up.
