Year 8's Win Opening Match of the Season

Last years League and District Cup Champions got off to a winning start in their 2014/15 League campaign, seeing off St Edmund Campion 5-1 at Home. 

The game was a chance for many of last year's players to show why they deserve to retain their place in the team. The first half was a poor one, with Arthur Terry conceding following a scramble in the box.

Campions' lead did not last long though, with Kai Knight equalising minutes later. With 5 minutes until half time Arthur Terry began to play football, with some neat, intricate passing in wide areas. It was during this time that Kai Knight grabbed his scond to give Arthur Terry a 2-1 lead at half time. 

Most of Mr Holliday's Year 7 squad have continued into the Year 8 team.
Half time saw the introduction of Dylan Russel in place of Harry Brophy and Harry Canning in place of Adam Perks. Arthur Terry began to pick up the pace and it wasn't long before Kai Knight completed his hat trick with a dipping shot from 25 yards lobbing the keeper. 

The home team continued to push forward. Good work from Jack Hawkins and Harry Canning led to Luke Barnett scoring from inside the box to make it 4-1. 

The Arthur Terry defence were rarely troubled in the second half, dealing with high balls and maintaining possession well. 

With moment left in the match, Jack Hawkins ventured down the left wing, cut in and struck an unstoppable shot into the far top corner. A superb strike and deserved for his outstanding work rate during the game. 

The Year 8's turn their attention to Cup Games now, with three cup competitions to take part in. They start with a Home match against Great Barr in the District Cup on Monday 22nd September, hoping to defend the trophy they won last season.
