Pictured are the outstanding Year 11 Football squad who reached the County Cup Final on Friday May 13 after defeating Kingstone, Hereford Academy, Whitecross and Queen Elizabeth, Bromyard to face St. Mary’s, Hereford.

On a blisteringly hot afternoon they dominated possession in the first half but couldn’t break down a strong St. Mary’s defence. The pattern continued in the second half with John Kyrle again having lots of possession but unable to turn their dominance into goals. They finally succumbed to the physicality and excellent fitness levels of the opposition and were beaten 2-0.

Coach and Head of PE, Mike Donoghue said of the team: “All players have been an absolute credit to the school, playing with a competitive edge but always holding the key values of sportsmanship, honesty and integrity whilst playing. A absolute pleasure to work with.”
