Our Year 10 football team turned back the clock to the standard of performance that clinched a league title last year with an emphatic 9-4 win over St Edmunds on Friday 17th March. The boys dominated the game from the start with the energy of captain C. Davies in the centre of midfield alongside his partner M. Li driving the team forward and putting us into a 5-0 lead within twenty minutes of kick off. Credit must be given to our opponents who made us work hard in the second half but the team continued to push forward and were in an unassailable 8-1 lead with minutes remaining.
After a few nervy minutes, J. Boyd made an inside run down the left side of the St Edmunds defence to put the game to bed and secure all the points for Smestow. Huge credit to K. Bull for his relentless attacking energy and J. Freewood for taking the gloves for the game and saving a second half penalty! It was also fantastic to see B. Owen and R. Shayler make their school debuts in the game.
