Year 9 Football unlucky in County Cup Semi-Final

On a soggy pitch the boys managed to play some excellent football against Thomas Beckett. Man of the Match W.Greenwood starred at the back and kept their main strike threat out of much of the match with some timely challenges, always getting to the ball first. There were few opportunities and J.Hughes made some superb saves considering the 18 yard box was very testing. Unfortunately Thomas Becket went one goal up during the second half.

Not for long though as J.Roberts latched on to a through ball and cooly slotted home past the Thomas Becket Keeper who was left floundering. The tension built in extra time as CCS pushed forwards. In the final minute of extra time T.Becket swung a hopeful near post cross in, which took a deflection into the goal leaving J.Hughes without a chance. Again the Year 9 were unlucky in the final stages of the cup. The F.A ref Mr. Peter Thompson gave credit to the team for the discipline and behaviour that the team displayed on the pitch. They did the school and themselves proud.

Player of the Match – W.Greenwood
