Year 8 Football District Cup Final – Tuesday 1st May v Guilsborough
The Year 8 final was a cagey affair in which both teams cancelled each other out during the first half. The start of the second half saw CCS become the dominant team (most likely thanks to an inspirational team talk from the CCS manager!!) and they were rewarded for this early on, with a great through ball and deft chipped finish from R White. CCS continued to pile on the pressure and took a two goal lead with an outstanding goal from the mercurial J Ward. The combination of the CCS attack with R White, R Nicklin, J Ward and T Hollis was proving too much for Guilsborough to handle.
However CCS failed to build on their two goal lead, and against the run of play Guilsborough snatched an equalizer from a corner. At 2-1 the game was set for a tense final 5 minutes, but CCS had enough composure and quality at the back to handle anything that Guilsborough could throw at them, and held on for a 2-1 victory.
Final score was 2-1 to CCS. Player of the match R White. CCS are District Cup Champions 2011/2012.
