Bolton School Boys' Division U15s football team has beaten
Manchester Grammar School and made it through to the national
Rensburg Sheppards ISFA Cup Final, where they will meet Whitgift
School from South Croydon.
Having gone behind to MGS after three minutes, the Bolton boys
showed determination and togetherness. Luke Eccles'
deflected equaliser was followed two minutes later by a truly
magnificent free kick from Josh Roberts from twenty yards out that
flew into the top corner. The 3-1 victory was sealed when
Roberts latched on to a through ball and slotted home fifteen
minutes before the end.
In earlier rounds the boys beat Bury Grammar School, 4-0; Leeds
Grammar, 2-0; and overcame Grange School, the champions from two
years ago, 6-2 in the Quarter Final. The team has won 18
of its 20 games this season.
The final will take place at Burton Albion's Pirelli Stadium on
Thursday 3 March at 6.00pm.
Last year a Bolton School team triumphed in the U13s ISFA Final
and the School also won the competition in 2003.
Bolton School is one of only nine schools nationally to be an
ISFA Focus School and this involves the school driving football
forward both within the school and throughout the region.
