Team Celebrate Cup Success
Well done to Mr Tibbles and the football team for winning the Gloucester Schools Intermediate Cup Final. The original match was due to be played on the first day of the Easter holidays but was postponed because of snow! This meant the team hadn't played together for over a month but that didn't matter as they stormed to victory against Hardwicke School. In a close first half the teams couldn't break the deadlock and went into the interval 0-0. In the second half Hardwicke scored an early goal to go into the lead. Not long after, a slick Highnam passing move ended up with a fine finish from Harry E, to draw the match level.
Extra-time seemed on the cards but with just 20 seconds to go a low cross from Alex was turned into the net by Harry at the far post. The parents and teachers were so excited... the team just had to hang on for the last few seconds which they did. It was great to see the great spirit in which the match was played. A wonderful end to a super season for the boys... league and cup double!
