Year 9 footballers win Gateshead Cup in stunning 6-1 final!

Wednesday 9 November 2022

The Year 9 Football team has won the Gateshead Cup, beating St Thomas More 6-1 in the final, held at Cardinal Hume.  The team played some superb football, passing and moving extremely well in very hot conditions.

This is just reward for the Year 9 team, who have been extremely committed to training with Dr Parkhurst each week and working so well as a team.  A huge thanks to Dr Parkhurst who has given up his time weekly to train and coach the team.

Goal scorers were Eddie Allan (1 goal), Matthew Grant (3 goals) and Sam Wiper (2 goals).

“No one expected it to end with such a clear winner,” said Eddie.  “The whole team was a little surprised but, judging by the way we played throughout the match, the shock was unnecessary!”  The boys are now turning their focus to their league matches and friendlies coming up throughout 2022/23, and they have their sights set on winning the same tournament again next year.
