Boreham Wood Under 19s claimed the National League U19s Alliance title for the second year in a row, with an emphatic 10-0 victory over Barnet.

Cameron Mawer’s sided needed a victory to clinch the league title, and turned in a dominating performance, to leave it at no doubt.

They got off to a dream start, when Sorba Thomas put them ahead in the ninth minute, connecting to a corner, to head home.

The lead was doubled shortly after, when Bradley Sach set up strike partner Alex Morgan, who lashed the ball across the goalkeeper and into the corner.

A perfectly executed one-two between Morgan and Sach then saw the former cross low for Thomas, who thumped home.

Two goals from Sach in as many minutes made it five, in just the 31st minute. Iliman Ndiaye slotted home a composed penalty, five minutes later.

Thomas then completed a first half hat-trick, when he curled a free-kick into the roof of the net.

The young Wood returned to the second half 7-0 in-front, but weren’t satisfied. Alex Radu smashed home from inside the area, after the ball had dropped sweetly for him, from a corner.

Ejike Akubude came on as a substitute to make his own mark, touching the ball around his marker and powering it home.

Sach made it doubled figures with little time to go, as he collected the ball from Thomas and slipped it past the ‘keeper.

On the title win, Mawer said: “The boys have done amazing, to be able to win it back to back, I think is a really big achievement.

“If you had said a year ago that we would go to a semi-final and win the league, then we would have been happy with that.

“Obviously, it was going to be really tough to emanate last year’s double winning side, but these boys have worked hard in their own right.

“A lot of last year’s squad have moved on and it is a new squad who have come in and they have done really well.

“It has been a tough league, with some really strong sides. West Ham are all third years, so they are all aged 19+. Romford are really strong, Thurrock, Braintree, there are a lot of good sides, so to come out on top of it, is a really good achievement.

“The boys have shown loads of character, they have dug in when they have had aches and pains, and some of the performances this week have been magnificent.

“We have scored 25 goals in three games this week and that shows a lot about their character and their personalities.”
