Palmer’s team are Essex champions

Palmer’s College 2nd XI have fought off competition from across the county to win the U19 Colleges 2nd XI Trophy after defeating Havering Sixth Form College 3-1 in an action packed final.

Goals from George Whiter (17, South Ockendon), Michael Salako (16, Basildon), Aaron Ajibawo (18, Dagenham), ensured victory for the team following their defeat in a dramatic penalty shoot-out in last year’s final.


Stuart Munday, Sports Teacher at Palmer’s, said, “We’re really proud of the team’s attitude, effort and commitment, which is everything you’re looking for from a school or college team.”

“All the boys were all magnificent and a credit to themselves and to Palmer’s College.”

Mark Vinall, Principal, added, “This is a fantastic result and reflects the hard work the team have put in, and shows the commitment of our sports staff who ensure students’ talents are nurtured during their time here.”
