Year 10 footballers into County Cup quarter-finals!

Yesterday our year 10 boys’ football team secured their spot in the quarter finals of the Nottinghamshire County Cup after a hard-earned win at home to Ashfield School.

Playing a strong side, including football academy and even some international players, our boys found themselves 2-0 down at half time. However, the team rallied round and with one of the strongest second half performances we’ve ever seen at National, they somehow wrestled back control of the match and ran out 3-2 winners, scoring some excellent goals in the process.

Well done to the lads on a magnificent performance, showing true determination in the face of adversity. Good luck for the quarter finals – we’re all rooting for you!
