This was a great performance by the year 7 team to progress through to the semi-final of the county cup. A bye in the first round followed by a win at Bohunt School, and a very comfortable quarter-final victory over JMA must give this talented and hard working side a very good chance in this competition.

Three goals in the first ten minutes effectively sealed the victory which included a superb strike by Joe Zambon and another poacher's goal by Tom Ellington. A mix-up at the back allowed JMA a reply but further goals in the second half ensured progress was made.

Alfie Agar had a superb game running the show from the midfield and some of his link-up play with James Isbell was a joy to watch. Quinn Ryan made a very impressive debut and along with Esat Polat in the spine of the defence, looked very strong indeed.

A very good team effort overall and we now look forward to the considerable number of games following half term.
