HAVANT under-16s finished a creditable fourth in the English National Championship finals at Olympic Park.
They started off the day fine form.
Havant secured a 2-1 victory against Beeston before scalping Bowden 1-0.
But they missed out on a place in the final when they lost 1-0 to Guildford and went into a third-placed play-off game against defending champions Surbiton.
Surbiton went into half-time 2-0 up but Havant came out strongly after the break.
They dominated the second period and closed the deficit through Finn Eastwood’s fourth goal of the tournament.
Havant narrowly missed a couple of chances to snatch an equaliser.
They now look forward to defending the Hampshire Cup against Bournemouth on May 1.
