On Wednesday 6th November the year 9 boys football team hosted Welland Park Academy in the 3rd round of the National School's Cup.
English Martyrs dominated the first half kicking downhill and were rewarded for their play by scoring 2 goals from William and Joshua. Welland Park scored either side of the half time interval and levelled the match. Battling against the slope, all players from English Martyrs gave it their all and deservedly were rewarded with a winning goal shortly before the final whistle, from Connor.
It was extremely difficult to select a man of the match from this fixture as their were so many brilliant individual performances, especially Connor, Joshua and Kerry. However, one player certainly had his best ever performance representing his school and therefore man of the match was awarded to Kaveh. Well done to all involved and we look forward to our opposition in round 4.
