U14s Win The Greater Manchester Cup
Friday, 10 May 2019
Bolton School U14 football team has won the Greater Manchester Cup, overcoming Blue Coat School 3-1 in the Final, which was held at the Vestacare Stadium, the home ground of AVRO FC in Oldham on Friday 10th May.
The U14s reached the final having beaten The Cooperative Academy, Parrswood High School and Hazel Grove High School in earlier rounds. Nathaniel Kampers scored in the first half, to give Bolton a 1-0 lead at half-time. Further goals in the second half from Luca Latona and then Joel Burgess gave the U14s an unassailable 3-0 lead, with Joel's goal being his 38th of the season. Blue Coat pulled a goal back midway through the second half, but a strong defensive display from the back four of Alex Old, Seb Thompson, Noah Halford and Ben Male meant that goalkeeper, Azzar Makkan, was rarely called into action in the final fifteen minutes of the game.
Captain, Max Carter, lifted the trophy, adding to the Town Cup trophy won before Easter. Team Coach Mr Hunt said: “This was the team's 16th cup game of the season, only one of those cup games being lost, that being to Thomas Telford School in the quarter final of the national ESFA competition. Given that the U14s are Town and Greater Manchester champions and were the last team standing from the whole of the North West of England in the ESFA competition, they have strong claims to be the best school U14 football side in the region.”
