U14 and 18 Cup Finals

On Tuesday the U14 Boys of Paulet HS in Burton met Repton, also a Burton and District School at Stafford Town FC in an enthralling cup tie. Repton took an early lead after Paulet missed a gilt edged chance with a fantastic strike but Paulet responded with an equally stunning finish from a free kick. Repton gradually got on top and went ahead midway through the second half and as Paulet tired they conceded two further goals at the death. Both teams put on a great show in the true traditions of schoolboy football with sportsmanship and mutual respect to the fore.

Repton also contested the Undr 18 final against locals Walton HS managed by an ex staffordshire county schools player. A very strong and talented Repton side dominated possession but it took them a large part of the first half to beat an inspired Walton keeper and some dogged Walton defending. Repton added two further goals to go in 3-0 at the break.

The second half saw a similiar pattern with Walton spending a large part of their time defending. Repton wer not to be denied and three further goals followed. Just when it looked as though an avalanche might follow the sheer doggedness and spirit of the Walton side came through and they responded with two late goals of their own. Another game played in fromt of a good humoured crowd by two teams who brought great credit to themselves and their schools.

Next week the U15 final takes place at Stafford Town FC on Tuesday KO5-45pm and theU12 Boys and all of the girls finals take place at St Georges Park starting at 10-00am on Thursday.
