LANGDON YEAR-NINES play at Brisbane Road today (Thursday) in the final of the London Cup and coach Sean Dennis says his side fear no-one.
The East Ham outfit have showed great resolve after coming from behind to win their last four matches, and Dennis feels his side's exceptional belief will lead them to victory.
"I feel we have the ability to beat anyone right now," he smiled. "These lads have gone behind so many times but keep coming back, they don't know when they are beaten!
"It would mean so much to the school as they have never won the competition before. "They did not do much last season and to win seven games to get here is magnificent."
