Bolton School’s U13 football team enjoyed a profitable trip over The Pennines recording an impressive 4-1 victory over The Grammar School at Leeds in the ISFA Cup. The victory puts them into the last 16 teams nationally. 

In an initially tight encounter both teams struggled to deal with the wet and wintry weather and the scoreline remained 0-0 at half-time. Bolton School started to get the better of the conditions in the second half and they began to assert their dominance. A superb team performance enabled them to win 4-1 with goals from Zach Baumann, Emmanuel Eze and a brace from Zach Giggs.  

Head of PE Mr Johnson said: “This was a very tricky tie in appalling conditions. The lads battled extremely hard and played some brilliant football. They thoroughly deserved the win and we hope for a home draw in the next round.”
