The Association continued their run of excellent form this season by winning the quarter-final away at Ardingly 1-0. They now play on next half in preparation for the Boodles ISFA Cup semi-final (the blue riband national competition for Independent Schools). A home draw against Repton on Tuesday 30 January is a mouthwatering prospect as both schools bid for a place in the final at Stadium MK (Milton Keynes Dons) in March.

Equally, the U15As have enjoyed an outstanding Michaelmas half. They played some excellent football to beat (among others) Hampton, Bradfield, Charterhouse and Bede’s and finish the half unbeaten. The undoubted highlight though was an epic 4-2 away win over a Whitgift side packed with academy players in the quarter-finals of the Investec ISFA U15 Cup. The team will now play at home to Aldenham in the semi-finals on Thursday 25 January.
