Barnby Road represented Newark & Sherwood at the County 7-a-side finals which took place at Sutton Lawn on Saturday morning. Each of the 8 districts of Nottinghamshire was represented by the strongest team from their respective area. The standard of football was very high and the team played outstandingly to win their group, going through with 5 points form 3 games.
The semi-final pitted us against a strong Whitemoor team from the City. We went 2-0 behind early on only for Josh Burkitt to bring us back to within one goal with a left-foot arrow just before half time. In the second half we pushed for the equaliser but could not quite achieve it.
Thank you to the boys who were exceptional, both in the way they played and also their attitude and sportsmanship. Thank you also to the parents and grandparents who gave up their time on a miserable morning!
