Barking Abbey Boys Football Academy playing as Alliance club Barking Whites FC will finish half-term as league leaders of the National U19 Alliance Division C. After initially climbing to 2nd spot Abbey boys played the current league leaders Borehamwood FC in a juicy tie of 1st v 2nd! Borehamwood FC started strongly forcing a fine reaction save from McEvoy in the Barking goal. As the game begun to develop Barking started to dominant possession. This possession finally lead to many chances being created, David Nwamadi was played in behind the Borehamwood FC defence, before seeing his shot saved well by the Borehamwood FC keeper.
