The Academy team have made a thunderous start to the season. Having dispatched The Giiffard for 11 without reply, it was the turn of Bantock Primary to face the force of this talented squad. From kick off we were on the offensive and it was only a matter of time until hotshot Declan got himself on the scoresheet. Nathan, Finlay and Brodey created a host of chances which helped Declan add 4 more to his tally. Rian, who was dangerous on the left all half, added another. Nathan completed the half with a super solo effort.
The second half saw Tommy make his debut for the team and he slotted in the back three extremely well. Luke also came on and showed real quality in his passing game. Skipper Jude displayed a controlled, quality performance, turning defence into attack with ease. Jake also commanded at centre half. The goals continued to flow with Declan and Fin adding a brace each, Nathan getting another, Haiden – the flying winger – firing in and an own goal made it 14. Brodey completed the scoring with a neat finish having hit the ‘woodwork’ several times already. Bantock never gave up and gave it their all, they were a credit to their school.
Final score 15 – 0. A huge thank you to the PTA for our new strip – the kids love it!
