Boys County Football

Saturday 24th February saw the boys finally get to play in their county finals after the previous attempt to play had been postponed in January.
The squad of Luke, Corey, Owen, George, Emerson and Ollie from Y5 plus Jenson and Max from Y6 began their tournament with a 3 - 1 victory against St Thomas' of Boston.
In our next game we needed a late equaliser against Birchwood (Lincoln) to draw 2-2 and go into our last group game knowing a draw would be enough to see us into the semi-finals. We had to work really hard for another 2-2 draw against Malcolm Sargent Primary from Stamford who were reigning champions having beaten us in the final last year.
As runners up in our group we were drawn against the winners of the other group Spalding Parish.This was a repeat of last years semi-final. Parish scored first and yet again we had to fight back to draw level and force the game into extra-time. As the game went on we got stronger and were able to take the lead and then hold on for a place in the final.

In the final we were up against Bourne Westfield who had beaten Birchwood 3 - 0 in the other semi-final. With Ollie struggling after a bang on the head we had to change our starting lineup for the first half of the final. The game was very close and it looked like Bourne's extra height and strength would see them through. At halftime it was still 0-0 but we were now playing into the wind. By now, Ollie had recovered enough to retake his place and we began to cause them more and more problems. Midway through the second half we were able to create a clear chance and Max slotted the ball past their goalkeeper to give us the lead. The last few minutes seemed like they were never going to end but Luke was able to keep the ball out of our goal helped and we held on to become county champions for the first time since 2014.
We can now look forward to the Midlands Region finals on the 5th May at Nottingham University
