Our fabulous Year 4’s brought the NTSSF Cup back to Hilldrop Road tonight after a night of drama at the Goals centre.
Our boys showed great resilience and guile as they progressed through the group stages with 4 victories before meeting our new found foes, Caroline Chisholm, in the semi-finals.
Having beaten us last week, the team from Wootton were in buoyant mood and duly went 1-0 up by the half. However, a 2nd half equaliser and a deadlocked extra-time sent the game to penalties. As CCS failed to negotiate their 6th spot-kick…the boys in green seized the opportunity to book their place in the Final and a re-match with their group stage conquerers, Ecton Brook.
A spectacular 2-0 victory sealed a debut success for our Year 4 team and brought the glory we’ve craved for so long!
The future’s bright…the future’s green…
Boys, your school is INCREDIBLY proud of you. Thank you.
Vive Les Fleurs!
Our historical Year 4’s:
Manager: Mrs de Board-Mourinho
Assistant Manager: Mrs Topham-Mourinho
The new generation of footballers at Simon de Senlis filled the sizeable boots left by their predecessors credibly as once again we took qualification by storm in the NTSSF Cup at Delapre Primary.
Les Nouveau Fleaurs, led by George Kennedy won 4 of their 5 matches, forming a formidable kinship along the way.
After a storming 3-0 victory over Briar Hill, which included a debut brace from Kieran Byrne, Thomas Curry was once again the match winner as the hosts were sent packing in a tight 1-0 win against Delapre.
As the rain descended, the ball ran against us as we succumbed 2-0 to Caroline Chisholm.
With heads down, a real test of character came in our penultimate match against a very tasty Queen Eleanor side who had shown a lot of flair in the tournament. Despite going 1-0 and 2-1 down, our boys came out fighting thanks to goals from Olcay Koc and a double from Tommy, with the winner cooly coming from the penalty spot.
That left us needing a result against Hunsbury Park in our final match to ensure qualification. Two more goals from Tom, taking his tally for the afternoon to 6, and a speculative strike from skipper George Kennedy gave us a comfortable 3-0 win and a berth in the semi-final stage for the 3rd year running.
Special mentions must also go to Liam Mooney who was a stalwart in goal, Rohan Sehmi who made his debut and pulled off a cracking save, the two tigers Luke Thomas and George Beezhold who were relentless in the tackle alongside the very cultured Archie Chorlton in defence and Isaiah Meadows who ran himself into the ground for the team on the left-hand side.
Well done boys…the school is very proud of you.
Vive Les Fleurs!
