Youth v Spelthorne Sports 8-1

Balham pulverised a shell shocked Spelthorne Sports in this league game at The Spelly’s home ground. The returning Sam Arbuckle, playing his first game at Balham since deciding to leave the Fulham Academy, in order to concentrate on his studies, was imperious and together with the rest of team put on a dazzling display of pass and move football on a sticky surface. The razor sharp Andre Cruz-Rosa helped himself to a second half hat trick, having come off the bench, whilst Dom Simpson-Last got a brace and Javier Aguilera, Anthony Thompson and Admir Ujkaj, also featured on the score sheet. This win continues a good run for Balham’s young guns who, with plenty of games still to play, still have hopes of a high finish in the league.
