Staffordshire Under 18 Boys are National Champions!

Yesterday the Under 18 Boys from Staffordshire Schools and Colleges FA took on Sussex in the ESFA Inter-County National Final at Stoke City FC. The boys ended up triumphant following a thrilling 10 goal spectacle at the Bet365 Stadium. Having taken a 3-0 lead after 10 minutes, Staffordshire trailed 4-3 with only 2 minutes of the scheduled 90 remaining. Remarkably this did not phase the Under 18 Boys, who showed incredible spirit, heart, and determination to score 3 goals in quick succession. The final finished 6-4 to Staffordshire, culminating in spectacular celebrations from the boys and the Under 18 coaches Mark Culverhouse, Greg Valentine, and Matt Skinner.

A huge congratulations from everyone at SSCFA to Staffordshire's Under 18 Boys and a massive thank you to all of the friends and families who have supported the team.
