Captain Ryan Heap led by example with a double as Marlborough School (Woodstock) captured the Oxfordshire Under 16 Cup with a 3-0 win over Henry Box (Witney) in the final at Roman Way, Oxford.

After controlling the opening exchanges, Marlborough opened the scoring with Heap on target.

The Woodstock lads continued to enjoy the upper hand, but were unable to add to their lead before half-time.

Henry Box put Marlborough under sustained pressure for the first 20 minutes of the second half, but some excellent goalkeeping by Charlie Leach preserved his side’s lead.

Then, with 15 minutes left, Heap dribbled round the Henry Box keeper, and casually rolled the ball into the net to double Marlborough’s lead.

Within two minutes, Connor Robbins sealed Marlborough’s victory with a great strike.

OXFORDSHIRE Under 16s’ South West Counties Cup match against Berkshire at Abingdon Town tonight was postponed yesterday due to a frozen pitch.

The match has been rearranged for Wednesday, February 29 (7.30pm).
