The Y11 boys put on a true master-class display in the final to defeat Great Barr School 7 - 0!  Robert Mooring's first-half header opened the scoring just before the break, which set the boys up nicely for the second-half goal fest that was to follow.  Midfielder Reece Hutchinson was in superb form once again and provided many assists for the rout, with clinical finishes coming from Samuel Watts and Josiah Francis in particular.  Team captain Jack Logan also contributed to the tally with a great finish from another well delivered set-piece from Hutchinson.  Despite the one-sided score line, goalkeeper Dylan Mandaracas arguably put in another man of the match performance, with several heroic saves that kept his and the team's clean sheet intact.  The whole team however were absolutely tremendous and proved to be worthy 3rd time winners of the District Cup trophy!!

Arthur Terry 3 - 2 Bishop Walsh

U12 District Champions 2016
U12 Arthur Terry Team
The Y12 boys came through a very closely contested final by edging out local rivals Bishop Walsh 3-2!  The game remained 0-0 at half-time and was very evenly poised; it only stayed this way though until 5 mins into the second-half when AT striker Oliver Powell was at hand to poke home the ball from close range to open the scoring. This goal provided the cue for the 'tug-of-war' scoring to begin! Walsh equalized shortly after the opener through a suberb strike that went in from outside of the box!  AT mid/fwd Alex Jones soon replied though with another 'worldy left foot finish' that sailed into the top corner from the edge of the box, restoring the boys 1 goal advantage.  The team then stretched their lead after Oliver Powell dispatched the team's third goal, after being put through to a 1v1 situation with the GK via a stunning through ball pass from midfielder Matt Greenway. With little under 10mins to play, Walsh once again scored another screamer from outside of the box to pull the score closer and set up a classic 'backs to the wall' finish! The team went on to defend brilliantly and hold out to the end, which enabled them to secure their first trophy ...which will hopefully be the first of many to come in the future!
