3.4 Quarter Final County Cup

Well done to the Year 4/5 football team that tonight reached the quarter finals of the County Cup. The boys were drawn into a tough group tonight but they played some absolutely stunning football and won both their matches to qualify to the quarter finals. In both matches they scored two perfect team goals, especially the first goal which started off with a pass from the back and ended with a one two on the edge of their opponents box and a thunderous strike that no goalkeeper would save. The boys were then drawn against previous winners and favourites for the cup, St Giles. You could see why St Giles were the favourites because they played some great football at times. Our boys gave their all despite St Giles dominating possession in the first half and with our defence on fine form and our goalkeeper producing some great saves, we managed to come in at half time 0-0. Our midfield and strikers worked so hard and tracked back at every opportunity but in the end St Giles were just too strong and scored. With only a minute left we went all out attack to try and get back into the game but unfortunately against a team as strong as St Giles, they caught us on the counter attack and scored again. We are so proud of the effort the whole team put in tonight and they were an absolute joy to watch. Special mention to our keeper that pulled off some fantastic saves again tonight, especially as he doesn’t play in goal outside of school but is always willing to help the team out and put on the gloves. Well done #TeamGP, couldn’t be any prouder.
