On Thursday 10th May, our under-11 boys’ football team were crowned Telford & Wrekin Schools’ champions, following a 2-0 victory against Coalbrookdale Primary School at The Buck’s Head.
Following a tense forty-minute 0-0 draw, the game went into extra-time. Towards the end of the first five minutes, Finlay Hardeman scored to give St Georges a 1-0 lead. Soon after the change of ends, it was Finlay again who scored to give St Georges a 2-0 lead which proved to be the winning goal that meant our school would pick up the magnificent winners’ shield!
As a school we are so proud of the team and how well all of the boys have played their part into helping them to be so successful. The team has endured some frustrating evenings in the Shropshire competitions at the Shrewsbury Sports Village, however they fully deserve to be crowned champions this year following a commanding set of results.
