On the 12th May, the Year 8 Football team competed in the Darlington Schools Town Cup final against Longfield School. The match was held at Rockliffe Park, the home of Middlesbrough FC’s training ground. Hurworth had made it to the final courtesy of an unbelievable comeback to beat Hummersknott 12-11 on penalties in the first round and a comfortable victory against The EV in the semi-final.
Hurworth immediately showed why they remained unbeaten in the league all season as they played some outstanding Football, moving the ball forward quickly whenever they were in possession. Hurworth effectively sealed victory in the first half as they took an early lead and then never looked back. Eventually running out 5-1 winners, captain and man of the match Matthew W scored 4, whilst Matthew K scored with a brilliant 35 yard effort.
A great way for the team to sign off their season! Congratulations to all the lads for achieving the cup and league double.
Many thanks to all of the parents for your support over the season and attending the matches, it is massively appreciated!
