Year 10 Football Boys - North Devon Runners-Up

Posted on: 22/03/2013

Tuesday evening saw the year 10 boys play the area final in Bideford against Bideford. By half time we were losing 4-0. Please read on! At half time after a few tweaks and reminders, we came out strong and made it 4-1, then 4-2, then 4-3…then 4-4!

As team coach Mr Bolton is running up the line celebrating, the linesman had unfortunately raised his flag and disallowed the goal. ‘Now, I’m sure you’re expecting me to say a mêlée followed but it’s here that I went from being gutted we had lost the game at that point to being immensely proud of the boys.

There were no complaints, no arguments with the ref or any dissent shown at all, I can say our kids are a real credit to the school and I could not be more proud of them. To pick yourself up at football at 4-0 down and go on and nearly win it shows immense character’.
