Year 7 Football Cup Final

Year 7 Football Cup Final

On Wednesday 5th April 2017, our Year 7 football team went to the neutral ground of Haybridge to battle it out against our closest rivals Earls in a very competitive cup final. We had been unbeaten all season and were confident we would bring back the trophy.
The game started very evenly with both sides simply testing out each other’s tactics for the first 10 minutes. Then in the eleventh minute Luke Fletcher put us 1-0 up, followed swiftly by a super slick second, to make it 2-0. After another 10 minutes, in which the boys thought they had already won the match, Earls also scored 2 quick goals in the 23rd and 25th minutes, which resulted in a 2-2 half-time score.
An inspiring half-time team talk and a perfectly executed plan meant that the second half was always going to be ours.  Ben Wood put us 3-2 up within 3 minutes, Luke completed his hat-trick within 6 minutes and Elijah Harris superbly smashed in his first, after 18 minutes of the second half, to make it 5-2.  Earls came again with a goal after 50 minutes of the match but then Elijah killed the game off with his second goal, after 55 minutes, resulting in a well-deserved 6-3 win.
The boys deserve great praise for their achievements this year, we are proud to have them at Windsor and they are a fantastic credit to our school.
We look forward to many more future successes!
