Barnby Road footballers attended the Individual Schools' 7-a-side Cup County Finals at Sutton Lawns on Saturday morning, returning to Newark as proud owners of County runners-up medals!
The boys were representing Newark having won the autumn tournament at Flowserve in October. They were up against teams from each of the districts of Nottinghamshire.
Starting solidly and getting better as the morning went on, the boys were unbeaten through all their 6 matches, winning 3 and drawing 3. Only one goal was conceded all morning and that came in the first half of the first match!
Unfortunately too many draws stopped the boys being crowned county champions, with them finishing 1 point behind the eventual winners - St Johns (who they did beat when the two sides met!).
The standard of football played by the team was excellent.
Thank you to everyone who took part and especially to parents and staff who supported on an extremely cold morning!
