After 8 years of trying, the boys football team has finally won the Crompton House annual football tournament. On a pudding of a pitch and with torrential rain, hailstones and a bitter Northerly wind in our faces, the Rushcroft lads still managed to play some sunshine football.
Our first game against Buckstones saw both teams struggling to get used to the conditions but a fantastic move involving Taylor and Tom set up a winner for Shaun right on full time.
Next up were St George's and again a close game was decided by one goal, this time coming from Tom with a neat finish.
Finally, we played St Mary's knowing that avoiding defeat would be enough. Once again Tom and Shaun linked up well, with Tom getting the only goal of the game. This match saw some stout defending from Matthew and Bobby with Will and Hayden battling hard in midfield. Alfie made some important saves too which meant that everyone contributed to our success. Well done team.
