Football News Round-Up

Thursday 20 September 2018

It's been a busy and successful start to the football season. Here are some of the recent highlights.

The 1st XI had two outstanding performances last week – one yielding a win, one a loss. The win came against Welsh Premier League side TNS’s U18 academy team – 1-0 with the goal from Nathan Day. On Saturday King’s Chester were the visitors and, despite dominating possession, a lack of composure around the box led to a 1-2 loss. The goal of the game came from a measured pass by TobyPegge (PH) for Charles Harpin to cross to Luke Bourne-Arton to head home at the far post.

The 2nd XI won against Ludlow (3-1) last week, drew against Idsall’s 1st XI (1-1) and won a feisty encounter last Saturday against King’s Chester (4-3). They were disappointed to lose 1-3 against Millfield this week.

The U16As won their early matches vs Idsall (3-1) and Oswestry (2-1) and this week had a great win away against Millfield 3-1.

The U15As also won their matches vs Idsall (4-3) and vs Kings Chester (2-1). This week they won through the first round of the national ISFA Investec Cup competition, beating Abbey Gate College 5-1. The following day they proceeded to beat Millfield away 2-0.

The U16Bs are in great form, winning 10-1 against Priory School last week and beating Millfield away this week 2-0.

The U15Bs had a very comfortable 17-0 win against Priory School. They lost their matches against Oswestry and Thomas Telford but were delighted to win away against Millfield 2-0.

Third Form Six-a-Side Tournament


A fabulous afternoon of House football last Satuday eventually saw Radbrook beat last year’s champions, Ingram’s, to win the trophy for the first time since 2012.

Radbrook had dominated Group A, with School House, Severn Hill and Ingram’s all tied with 3 points and 4 goals scored. So it came down to the head-to-head in individual matches, with Ingram’s progressing to the semi-final.

In the semi-final they faced a strong-looking Oldham’s team that had won group B by a single point from Port Hill (8 points) and Rigg’s (7 points).

Final standings after all matches:
1st – Radbrook
2nd – Ingram’s
3rd/4th – Port Hill/Oldham’s
5th – Rigg’s
6th – Severn Hill
7th – School House
