Football: ISFA Boodles U18 Cup - 4-2 win takes 1st XI through to Semi Finals

Shrewsbury (in yellow) attacking during yesterday's match

Our 1st XI played Bolton School at home in the Quarter Finals yesterday afternoon. The 1pm kick off meant they had a good supporting crowd for what turned out to be a tense and exciting match.

In the first half hour, our team played extremely well and Will Waterworth (Rt LVI) managed to score two goals.  A defensive error then gave the oppostion the chance to score a goal, but an own goal from Bolton took the score to 3-1 at half time.

The first 20-25 minutes of the second half were extremely tense; Bolton were putting on a lot of pressure, and succeeded in scoring another goal.  However, our boys retained their composure, and a fourth goal was scored by Elliot Christie (PH UVI) in the last 10 minutes.

We will be playing Millfield in the Semi Final, at home, on Friday 25th January.  Kick-off is at 1.30pm - please come and support us if you can!
