U11s win league de­cider to take trophy

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

IT WAS Chal­font St Peter CofE School’s U11 boys’ football team’s turn to bring home the sil­ver­ware af­ter win­ning their league de­cider against ri­vals Stoke Po­ges.

Chal­font went into the game not only know­ing that the win­ners would take the ti­tle, but also with a score to set­tle, hav­ing lost out to the same op­po­nents in the cup. A goal down at half time, the boys had to dig deep, and not long into the sec­ond half the bal­ance seemed to tip into Chal­font’s favour – so it was lit­tle sur­prise when the ball was volleyed home from a cor­ner for the equaliser.

With their tails up, Chal­font won it mid­way through the sec­ond half with a shot curled into the top cor­ner from the edge of the area, a goal wor­thy win­ning any game, never mind a ti­tle.

Head teacher El­iz­a­beth Un­der­wood said: ”We are ab­so­lutely thrilled to have won the league to round off the sea­son’s suc­cesses.

“A huge thank you to our coach, Josh Bri­ant, who many years ago used to him­self be a mem­ber of our football team – and is still bringing suc­cess to the school.”
