On Tuesday 17th November, Mr Hunt took eleven Year 8 boys to Middlewich to take part in the annual 7-a-side festival.

The boys did extremely well at last year’s tournament and were the eventual winners so had the added pressure of trying to emulate last year’s heroics

The team played three league games  and performed outstandingly well in all three matches:

Hartford – Won = 2-0
Leftwich – Won  = 1-0
Middlewich – Won = 3-0

As a consequence they qualified comfortably for the final in which they faced Weaverham who were also unbeaten in their respective league. A tense final was closely fought out with only two late goals separating the teams. Thankfully they were from the academy!! The team:

Aiden Weedall                                      Rio Cross
Jacob Russell                                         Marcus Robinson
Ellis Seddon                                          Josh Woodward
John Baggeley                                      Ryan Johnson
Kelsey Sullivan                                    Mitchell Hughes
Callum Herbert

The Year 8 football team have had a tremendous season which has seen them unbeaten in the Vale Royal Schools League. A position they share with St Nicholas Catholic High School who also remain unbeaten. Both teams will meet later in the academic year to play-off for the bragging rights of who will be Year 8 league Champions.
