Firsts v Cobham 6-1


At long last, following a frustrating pre season, Balham produced a top performance from beginning to end and in doing so swept aside their opponents. The final scoreline possibly flatters slightly however Balham played some lovely football and four of the six goals scored were of the highest order. A sublime lob from Jack Haire, a worldy, powerful, right foot curler, from the edge of the box, from James Adebayo and two of Morgan Roberts-Watson’s three back of the netters were the pick of the half dozen. The other came from centre forward, Ibrahim Olutade, who slotted home a penalty in the second half.
