Greenfield Football success

posted 8 Jun 2015, 03:56 by Unknown user

Well done to Greenfield Community College’s Year 8 boys football team, who reached the final of their cup recently.

They played St Johns in the quarter final, winning 5-1 in challenging weather conditions. The semi final against Durham Johnston was a great advert for youth football. It was a hard game played by two very committed teams. Both teams attacked from the start with Durham Johnston hitting the wood work, however, it was Greenfield had a 1.0 lead at half time. In the second half Durham Johnston started very strongly and looked the more likely to score. Greenfield weathered the storm and eventually won the game 3.0 with goals from Josh Richardson (2) and Harri Lynch.

The final against Whitworth School was played at Parkside recently. After a slow first half against a strong team, Greenfield came out fighting in the 2nd half and clawed a goal back but it was too big a mountain to climb and eventually went down 7.1 to Whitworth who were the better team on the day. Well done to the Greenfield boys for their hard work and training to reach the final, this is a great achievement!
