Chigwell School’s first team are through to the second round of the Independent Schools Under-18 national cup after beating Malvern College 3-2 in a thrilling first round encounter.
The boys were a goal down in the first half but Max Salador headed in an equaliser from a corner and Chigwell took the lead before the break when Alex Drew cut in from the right and fired home.
Malvern drew level again in the second period but Salador netted the winner with another header to secure a hard-fought victory and earn Chigwell a trip to Kimbolton School in Cambridgeshire in the next round.
There was also success for Chigwell Under-13s, who are through to the second round of the ISFA national cup after beating Ibstock Place School 2-0.
Hiran Solanki scored both goals in the victory over their Roehampton opponents and Chigwell will now host Junior King’s, Canterbury, in the next round.
Chigwell School’s head of football Creag Lawrence said: “Both teams will be looking to progress further in the competitions after a good start to the season.”
