Mr Simpson says: The 6 boys I took to the County Finals (Winners of each of the district 5-a-side competitions) on Wednesday night were a credit to the school!  Their behaviour was exemplary and they were a pleasure to take.  The competition was incredibly high and we needed to win the last game to finish first, but unfortunately lost 2-1, so finally finished in 3rd place.  All of the players were fantastic.

Game 2   Broomhill L 2-1
Game 3   Awsworth W 1-0
Game 4   Barnaby Road D 0-0
