On Tuesday evening the Senior Boys Football Team travelled to the British Columbia Academy in Jimingsi to kick off the football season. Their first game playing together as a team, they started very well but found themselves unfortunate to be 3-0 down at half-time. However, the boys produced a spirited fightback in the second half, dominating for large periods, playing some tremendous football, and finding themselves deservedly winning the second half 3-1. After a frantic last couple of minutes in which the boys gave their absolute all to secure an incredible comeback, the final whistle was blown and BCA ended up 4-3 winners.

It was a thrilling encounter and an excellent start to the season for the boys. It was their first time playing together, but it didn’t take them long to find their feet and confidence. They did themselves and the school extremely proud. This was the first of many fixtures we expect to have scheduled throughout the school year, and we are confident that if we play like we did tonight, it won’t be long until we have our first victory! Very well done boys, a fantastic evening. Thank you to Mr Beardshaw for refereeing, and Mr Watson also for coming along and providing some expert tactical advice!
