Our under-11 footballers got their season off to a great start after finishing as joint-winners of a seven-a-side tournament held at the King’s School, Macclesfield.
After losing their opening game 1-0 against Terra Nova, the boys showed great spirit to beat both King’s Macclesfield and Bury Grammar 2-0 and qualify for the semi-finals as winners of their group.
In a closely contested semi-final packed with drama, Bolton equalised with moments left, only for Stockport Grammar to go straight up the other end of the pitch and score the winner with the last kick of the game.
The boys faced Terra Nova once more in the final, scoring early in a match which ended 1-1 after extra-time. With no penalties played, the trophy was shared between the two teams, with coach Mr Dave Makinson pleased with the outcome of the tournament:
The boys should be very proud of their performances in a very tough competition and can now look forward to the season with confidence.
