King’s on course for top quadru­ple

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT -

THE King’s School’s un­der-11 foot­ball team travel down to the FA’s Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence at St Ge­orge’s Park in Bur­ton early May in search of a unique quadru­ple of top tro­phies.

The pri­mary school preda­tors have just won the In­de­pen­dent School’s As­so­ci­a­tion’s North-West foot­ball cham­pi­onships with a dis­play forged on de­fen­sive strength and at­tack­ing flair at Bolton School’s Foot­ball Fes­ti­val.

This adds to King’s bur­geon­ing tro­phy cabi­net hav­ing al­ready won this sea­son a Macclesfield and District Pri­mary School’s tour­na­ment and the Manch­ester City in­vi­ta­tional tour­na­ment held at the Ethiad com­plex ear­lier in the year.

Once again the team’s ef­forts were fin­ished off by their fox in the box Leo Chinea who scored two op­por­tunist strikes in the 3-0 semi-fi­nal win against Stock­port Gram­mar fol­lowed by a long range drive clin­i­cally steered round ‘keeper and de­fence for the only goal of the fi­nal against King’s Ch­ester. In all the team scored 14 goals and only con­ceded one, win­ning five of their seven games and draw­ing the other two.

The side have a strong plat­form in rock solid keeper Archie Lit­tle and no non­sense de­fend­ers Tyler Keefe, Noah Reaney and cap­tain Jake Leech who also know how to play ex­pan­sively from the back, quickly turn­ing de­fence into at­tack.

In the mid­dle there is cul­tured play­maker Har­ri­son Mil­ner with the in­ci­sive, fast wing­men Daniel Wil­liams and Luke Wil­liams cutting in from the flanks, while up front Leo Chinea has an ea­gle eye for goals

King’s Ju­nior Di­vi­sion Foot­ball Coach Mike Wal­ton said: “We have some league fix­tures against lo­cal schools to come be­fore the break which al­ways prove to be tough en­coun­ters to sharpen our skills and af­ter Easter we will step up our train­ing ready to take on schools from ev­ery cor­ner of the coun­try.”
