Football - National Elite Cup

The Year 8 football team are through to the quarter finals of the National Elite Cup.

The Year 8 football team are through to the quarter finals of the National Elite Cup, after a comfortable 3-1 victory at home to Sandwell Academy from West Bromwich.

The tight first-half deadlock was broken by Poe, who found himself on the end of a loose ball following a set piece from Martin. The away side struck back almost instantly with a fine 25-yard effort which flew into the top corner. Calday were given the opportunity to re-take the lead on the stroke of half time. Allport was felled in the box, but picked himself up to smash the penalty home to give the men in maroon a deserved 2-1 half time lead. The Calday players clearly gained confidence from this, subjecting their opposition to relentless attacks whilst defending with solid resistance. It was game over when Blackie, who was awarded with MOTM, fired home for Calday's third of the game.

We now progress to the quarter finals of the National Elite Cup. Well done to all players involved.
