Well done to the Year 4/5 football team that tonight won the Meadows Cup. The boys played some absolutely stunning football tonight and fully deserved their win. They got off to a great start winning their first match 13-0 but we knew the next match would be tough playing against a team that had also won their first match by double figures. Grange Park got off to stunner though, scoring 2 goals in the first 5 minutes and winning the match 4-1, with our goalkeeper having to make an absolutely stunning save when we 2-1 up. This now meant if we won our last match we would be through to the cup final. The boys continued where they left off in the last match and won the last group game 7-0.
The cup final match unfortunately had to be cut short to a 12 minute match because of time issues and the game remained 0-0 for most of the first half. Just before half time though we scored another brilliant team goal. Grange Park then had a few chances to get a second but our opponents goalkeeper and defence were looking solid and they always looked dangerous on the break. We knew it would take something brilliant to get a second goal and we accomplished that with a fantastic team goal that included 9 passes before the ball was crossed in and slotted home in the corner.
Well done boys, that was an absolutely brilliant team performance. Perfect
