On Thursday 21st September, the Year 7 boys football team had their first 2 matches of the new football season at New College.
Having only had one training session, the team firstly played a highly competitive fixture against the hosts. English Martyrs started the game very well and took the lead throughGerard, however New College replied with a well worked goal of their own. After a very close second half however, English Martyrs once again took the lead through a goal from Harry, meaning the match ended with a 2-1 victory. Immediately after the match, English Martyrs then played a second fixture against Samworth, which ended in an even 1-1 draw, with both teams sharing a similar amount of possession and opportunities to win the game.
Overall, the whole squad of 15 players that English Martyrs took to these fixtures demonstrated fantastic commitment, team work and represented the school in excellent fashion. Well done to all of those who participated.
