What a performance, what a team. Massive congratulations to our Year 5/6 boys Football Team that tonight won their semi final 3-1 against a great St Peters Edgmond Team. The boys have made history by being the first boys Grange Park team to reach the cup final, hopefully we can extend this history by being the first Grange Park boys team to win the cup. St Peters Edgmond were by far our toughest opponents of the season so far and they controlled the play for the first 5 minutes and nearly scored but our goalkeeper pulled off a great save followed up by an even better rebound save. This sparked the boys to life and we started to keep the ball better and our reward came just before half time with an amazing strike from the half way line. We knew we still had a lot of work to do in the 2nd half and we had to keep the ball more if we were to go on and win the match. Grange Park then scored the goal of the match with the team putting together 6 or 7 passes before our striker calmly slotted the ball in the corner. The game then became stretched with St Peters throwing everyone forward but the boys kept to the plan and again scored a great counter attacking goal. St Peters scored near the end of the match from a free kick that was brilliantly saved by our goalkeeper but their striker was alert to tap in the rebound.
Definitely performance of the season tonight, the boys couldn’t of given anymore and fully deserved their win. Very proud of every single one of you #TeamGP
The final will be played on Thursday 11th May at the New Buck Head Stadium.
