Four goals fantastic
Our Year 11 football team scored an impressive 4-3 victory in an English Schools’ Football Association match yesterday.
Playing against a very strong team from St Clere’s School, Thurrock, our team were 2-0 down at half-time. Yet, all demonstrated great resilience and a determination not to give up in second half, as Mr Bradley, who accompanied our team, explains.
“Our players returned to the field with two finely taken goals from Abdul. Our team then kicked on with a great header from Joel and gave ourselves a two goal cushion with a close range finish from Antonio. Our team survived a final scare when a late goal was conceded but held on to ensure an incredible 4-3 victory.
“Huge congratulations must go to the whole team and especially to our man of the match, Foday.”
Our Year 11 football team now go into the second round with an away fixture against Woodlands School in Basildon.
