‘Where everyone is able to achieve their best’

Newark Football Champions

The 'A' football team became the latest group to win the coveted Newark Schools' Autumn Football tournament. The boys were undefeated in their group, winning 4 and drawing 2 of their 6 matches including a resounding 3-0 win over fierce rivals Chuter Ede.

The team advanced into the semi-final without conceding a goal and continued in this style in the knock-out round. The semi against Coddington was an excellent match; Dean Robinson securing victory with an outstanding finish with 4 seconds left on the referee's watch!

The final was a tight affair too, pitching us against John Blow from Collingham, who we had beaten 2-0 earlier in the day. Still 0-0 after extra-time the match went to penalties.

The deciding kick fell to goalkeeper Harvey Willis who calmly slotted the ball home for a famous victory.

The boys will now go on to the County 7-a-side and 5-a-side finals representing Newark & Sherwood District. Thank you to everyone involved.
