Year 10 Football Update

The Year 10 boys’ football team continued their progress in the national cup competition beating Six Valleys Academy from Chichester. As this was the quarter final the game was played at Kidlington Football Club and huge thanks must go to the club for making it a great occasion for the students and spectators.

Gosford started the first half much the stronger team and enjoyed the majority of possession and territory but could not convert any of the chances. Six Valleys scored with their first attack through a breakaway move and it looked like it just wouldn’t be Gosford’s day. However Ben Stewart equalised towards the end of the first half to balance the score.

At the start of the second half Six Valleys again took the lead and Gosford mounted huge pressure on the away team but again with no success. The game appeared to be out of reach for Gosford despite playing the better football and having the majority of possession. In the last few minutes Piers Walton found space to score and take the game into extra time.

Despite the big pitch Gosford continued to battle and showed great character to take the lead in the first half of extra time again through Piers Walton. Much credit must be given to the back four who showed great maturity and understanding throughout the game and the midfield who worked tirelessly on a big pitch.


Squad: B. Owen, A. Littlewood, A. Jhutti, A. Yillah, P. Walton, L. Wirdnam-Crick, B. Stewart, H. Firkin, J. Clarke, J. Hudson, W. Baker, O. Birchall, H. Hall, L. Kimber, L. Sykes, J. Keighery, J. Cowlishaw, K. Grossman
