Team Leicestershire County Champions!

On Friday 5th April, the Year 9 and Year 10 boys football teams were both crowned Team Leicestershire County Champions at Harborough Town FC.

The Year 9 team (pictured below) have now won this trophy for three consecutive years, which is a fantastic achievement. Kyle McAdam opened the scoring for the Year 9’s against Wigston Academy direct from a free-kick near halfway. Wigston hit back and equalised on the stroke of half-time, before Ryan Bush secured a 2-1 victory with a superb first time strike into the top corner.

The Year 10 team (pictured below) had a bad start conceding two goals in the opening quarter. They managed to claw themselves back into the game when Harry Laundon got on the end of a Sam Collins free kick to score, but conceded again straight from the kick-off. This left them with a 3-1 deficit to overcome at half-time. Tino Msipa started the fight back, getting on the end of Luis Parry’s long clearance to head over the goal keeper. Josh Barrett scored the equaliser with a bizarre goal. Another Luis Parry clearance bounced onto the crossbar, twice, falling into Josh’s path allowing him to volley home. It was all Groby now with Jenson Gutteridge and Tino Msipa hitting the bar before Mac Williams had the last word with a far post header from a corner.
