On Thursday 19th October, the year 8 football team began their campaign in the WMCSFA U13 Cup. The team travelled to Moreton School in Wolverhampton to start their journey towards winning some silverware.
Moreton are a familiar foe as a similar fixture in the same round of the same cup only a year ago finished in an 8-1 win for TGBS. As the rain poured down, the whistle blew to start the game and Moreton spurned an early chance putting the ball narrowly wide. This galvanised a TGBS side who were looking for their first win of the season. A 10-minute flurry of excitement saw Demario H, Tamsir C and Lewis T smash goals in to give TGBS a 3-0 lead at half time.
The second half brought more of the same with two more goals being scored. A second for Demario H and the pick of the bunch from Connor J who struck a low driven shot from outside the area into the bottom right hand corner. A comfortable 5-0 win.
The team look forward to their next fixture in the cup but before then, Bishop Challoner awaits…
