Congratulations to the Year 8 Football Team who reached the final of the CPR Cup Final with a scrappy 1-0 victory against King John on 12 April.
An early goal from Tristan Ogunwufa proved to be enough in a close encounter between two evenly matched sides. Greensward dominated possession throughout but had to be wary of the counter-attacking threat from the pacey KJS attackers. Jack Cooper and Adam Johnson at the heart of the Greensward defence both put in commanding performances supported by William Thresher and Daniel Fleming.
Late chances to make the game safe fell to both Sam Adebayo and Tristan Ogunfuwa but these were spurned and Greensward survived some late pressure to complete a deserved victory.
Thank you to the parents and families for their continued support and for taking the nets down at the end of every home game. The Year 8s join the Year 9s in reaching the CPR Finals Day at Canvey Island FC next Tuesday 19 April. The Year 8s take on Fitzwimarc School (11.15am k/o) whilst the Year 9s are up against Appleton School (9.45am k/o).
