Team Leicestershire: KS3/4 Boys Football Finals
Posted: Tue, 04 Apr 2023 13:12
Congratulations to every school that made it to the Team Leicestershire Boys Football County Finals which were on held at Aylestone Park FC in the final week of March.
There were 5 finals in total ranging from the U12 competition right through to U16 age group. The evening was a fantastic way to end the season, with many teams beginning their local area qualification campaigns back in the Autumn Term. Teams arrived in great spirit in the hope of taking a trophy back to their school! It was also fantastic to see so many supporters who'd come along to cheer their teams to victory which created a real buzz around the pitches.
Each final was hotly contested on the pitch, most results being decided by the odd goal and it was no surprise to see teams competing hard right up until the final whistles. There we a couple of outstanding comebacks from a goal behind, which provided us all with some nail-biting finishes. We even thought we may some penalty shoot-outs at one stage! A special mention must go to the goalkeepers who had their work cut out all night with the outstanding skills and attacking play on show, but who were spotted making some outstanding saves to keep their team in the match. There was plenty of positive encouragement for their teammates and respect shown towards their opponents throughout the finals.
The final results were as follows;
Y7: South Wigston High School 2 – 8 Lutterworth High School
Y8: Lutterworth High School 1 -2 Hastings High School
Y9: Anstey Martin School 2 – 0 South Wigston High School
Y10: Kibworth Mead 1 -2 Uppingham CC
Y11: Wigston Academy 2 – 0 Ashby School
Many thanks to all the teachers and team managers for arranging and taking pupils to fixtures this season and particularly for bringing them along on finals night. Many thanks also go to Steve and Alan from the Leicestershire schools football association and Aylestone Park FC for hosting us at this event! We'd also like to congratulate and thank all to the match officials who did an outstanding job too.
We hope everyone enjoyed the occasion and hopefully we will see you again soon at a future Team Leicestershire County Final event.
