Al­fie Miller scored twice as Tow­ers School un­der­19s beat Ravenswood 4-1 to win the Acad­e­mies Cup fi­nal at the Gallagher Sta­dium in Maid­stone. They went into the game in good spir­its, af­ter re­turn­ing from France hav­ing fin­ished the Vieux Conde Tour­na­ment as run­ners-up. They lost the fi­nal 1-0, hav­ing not con­ceded a goal in the com­pe­ti­tion be­fore that. Brom­ley-based former winners Ravenswood started the bet­ter side, be­fore Tow­ers went in front against the run of play. By the half-hour mark they had opened up a 3-0 lead. Char­lie Cairns put them ahead with a calm fin­ish and Miller then got his first with a far-post fin­ish, be­fore slot­ting home the third. Ravenswood pulled one back from the penalty spot be­fore half-time. Tow­ers missed sev­eral chances to in­crease their ad­van­tage in the sec­ond half be­fore Lib­ert Chanyawu forced the Ravenswood goal­keeper into a mis­take as he at­tempted to con­trol the ball. Chanyawu then held off two cov­er­ing de­fend­ers be­fore scor­ing. Any post 16 stu­dents want­ing to join Tow­ers Academy should con­tact man­ager Jack Al­bin - e-mail al­binj@tow­ers.
