Year 7's of to a flying start with Birmingham Cup Win!

The Year 7 football team played their first ever match on Tuesday 23rd September against Kings Norton Boys School in the Travel West Midlands Cup. A squad of 15 players were selected to represent Arthur Terry, and all of them played their part in a very pleasing 2-1 victory.

The first half saw Arthur Terry dominate, without being able to turn possession and chances into goals. In the second half, after applying further pressure, captain Will Hussey broke the deadline with a fine finish. Kings Norton levelled the game up with 10 minutes remaining with a goal against the run of play, but with a few minutes remaining Jack Nation scored what turned out to be the winning goal with a fine strike.

Arthur Terry saw the game out and will now play Kings Heath Boys school in Round 2.

Jake Lamb was named man of the match after a fine defensive performance, but the whole team did themselves proud!
