The Year 7 football team travelled to Harrogate to face St Aidans School in order to battle it out for a place in the last 16 of the ESFA Elite National Cup. The lads had performed exceptionally well to reach the last 32 but knew they faced tough opposition in St Aidans. Hurworth raced out of the traps and were 2-0 up after 2 minutes with Wilson and Bell scoring. St Aidans battled hard and drew level just before half time to leave it 2-2 at the interval.
As the game opened up both teams had numerous chances to score, however, Hurworth took the lead and never looked back, captain Wilson completing his hat trick and Jordison and Johnson chipping in to make the final score 6-3 to Hurworth.
Well played to both teams, the football on display was outstanding, many thanks to St Aidans for being such great hosts.
The draw for the last 16 will be made on Monday the 17th, the lads have performed superbly well to reach this stage and have been an absolute credit to the school. They are now only two games away from the National final at Old Trafford!
