Football: Alleyn's pupils bolster ISFA teams
Several boys started their football season early this year, representing the ISFA across a range of ages.
Billy Murphy, representing the ISFA England side at U15 put in fine performances at centre-half and received many plaudits for his performance against Crystal Palace where he led the defence to a clean sheet in a 0-0 draw against the Premier League academy team.
Zach Wood represented the ISFA U16 side at the Oakham football festival, again at centre half. A testing series of fixtures against academy sides from Rotherham United, Leyton Orient, Peterborough United, Bradford City and Leicester City served as excellent preparation as he steps up to represent the school 1st XI.
Sam Arbuckle, who is a mainstay for the ISFA U16 team, spent the summer working with his Academy side Fulham in preparation for the coming season.
Luke Cook represented the ISFA U14 National side at the same festival as Zach, again matching up against Academy sides from as far away as Dunfermline. Luke will have gained much from the experience and will have been delighted to have netted several goals in his role as centre forward against oppositions of such pedigree.
