Victory for County!

In last night’s hotly anticipated final the Year 10 boy’s football team won their season defining match against Glebelands 3-0. In weather more suited to beach volleyball, and in front of a record crowd, both teams started strongly. However, after 10 minutes Tom Nicole burst through the Glebeland’s defence before smartly finishing past on the onrushing goalkeeper. Minutes later, after a scramble in the box, Alex Mansfield tucked home a second goal to put County further ahead. A just reward for a fantastic individual performance from Alex. In the second half the boy’s dominated from start to finish, boxing Glebeland’s in and piling on the pressure with neat football. Just when it seemed the final goal wasn’t going to come leading scorer Tom Nicole beat the defence once again before coolly finishing. Two minutes later the final whistle blew which meant County became Champions!!!!!

The boys have been an absolute credit to the school throughout this season, and performed magnificently throughout the final. It really was the definition of a team performance and they all deserve huge praise for their efforts.

Congratulations to them all.
