Oaklands College’s Wolves football team were crowned BCS Eastern Region Cup winners for the first time in the College’s history.

Despite torrential rain, the Wolves were victorious with a 3-0 win against last year’s finalists, Milton Keynes College.

The match was well-balanced, until Oaklands scored the first goal on the stroke of half time. It was just before the half time whistle went that the Milton Keynes’ goal keeper was put under pressure by goal scorer Harry Budge, who put the team in the lead with the assistance of Joel Watson.

With their one nil lead, the Wolves began to take control of the game and the second goal came courtesy of Adriano Gil.

Victory and the title of the match was confirmed by the third goal made by Vagnol Kediambiko, which was lined up by George Robinson.

Chris Watters, Oaklands Wolves Coach, said: “The quality of the performance – despite the weather – just wasn’t to par in the first half, but by the second half they found their style, with clean passes, and a desire to win the ball.

“By the time the final whistle was blown we were delighted to get out of the worst weather conditions the lads have played in, just as much as winning the crown of Eastern Champions.

“I am so proud of how well the team came together, and must congratulate Marcus Weston for being man of the match, despite coming off in the last few minutes with an injury.”

The victory will see the Wolves enter the final stage of the competition where all eight of the regional winners will compete for the rights to be crowned National Champions.

The Wolves’ next fixture will be a home match on Wednesday 5 March where they face the winners of the Lincoln College and Brook House College game.
