The Year 8's were exceptional in the recent District Football Final.
After an even first half we found ourselves 1-0 down to Belvidere after a lucky mis-hit cross went over Harry Emery into the top corner. We dominated the second half and Oli Wysopal's belter of an equaliser looked like the start of a superb victory for us. However, a second goal never came.
Shrewsbury scouts showed interest in Oli, Ellis Turner and Freddie Newall during the second half domination. Full time 1-1 with the same score line after extra time. Penalties - Harry Emery got his hand to 2 of their 5, but not enough to keep any out. We missed our 3rd with Tom Cross the taker, very emotional when their 5th went in.
Great game, great character, and unlucky not to bring home the silverware.
Ellis Turner received man of the match.
