Mixed bag of results for Oratory School

THE Oratory School had mixed fortunes in their recent matches against St John’s, Leatherhead in the Southern Lent Term League for the Charles Alcock Cup.

The first team won a 4-2 thriller against last season’s league champions.

Oratory raced into a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes with goals from the captain Will Hollin and Harry Mew.

Early in the second half St John’s pulled a goal back. With the game evenly balanced, Paddy Birkholm fired home from the edge of the box before St John’s made it 3-2 after their striker was struck in the box by the Oratory’s keeper for the referee to award a penalty.

In the dying moments a telling delivery from a Jack Hollister free kick outside the box was calmly put away with a glancing header from Will Lovett.
