The Year 11 team have improved immensely year upon year. Sadly in last years final the lads fell just short, beaten by a strong Carmel team 3-1. Thanks to a string of solid performances the team found themselves against the same opposition in what would be their final game of schoolboy football before their GCSE exams. This would be a tough game as Carmel had won the Town Cup for the previous four years!
No one expected what was to happen next as Hurworth produced their best ever performance for the school, playing some outstanding football and showing great determination the lads took the lead early and simply kept on dominating. By half time Carmel were growing into the game, at the interval Hurworth were winning 3-1. The next goal was going to be crucial, thankfully Hurworth managed to grab it and kept on playing some superb football, eventually winning the game 7-1.
Apologies, in my excitement of winning the game I forgot to note down who scored and when!
Every single player was simply outstanding, huge congratulations to the team who fully deserved their trophy.
Good luck to all of the lads in your GCSE examinations, you have been a pleasure to manage for the last three year and have shown great determination, I am immensely proud of what you have achieved and hope that you keep playing for your club teams, you are too good to stop!
