Four of our teams made it to the final of the South Ribble Schools Cup for their year group.  

Match report - Year 10 by Mr Faulkner.

Having battled their way through an unpredicted challenge by St Mary’s School in the South Ribble Cup semi final, the main question for the Priory Year 10 football team was inevitable: Which team would turn up for the cup final? Would they cope with the pressure? 

Luckily, for the students themselves and all the excited supporters, the RIGHT team arrived at the UCLan Sports Arena on Wednesday evening. With heads held high and focused faces the Year 10s set about asserting themselves on the pitch against a strong Balshaws team.

Unfortunately, as is the magical game of football, the opposition scored first due to a short lapse of concentration by Priory. For a brief moment, it was the semi final all over again. However, pressure from Priory soon resulted in a direct free kick that was subsequently BLASTED in by Fisher.  At this point confidence, determination and team work flowed. 

The game was entertaining for all, with a final score result of 5-3 to Priory. As well as Fisher’s fiery finish, goals also came from Dowd (2), Ashcroft and Freeman.  A great result for the Year 10 team, a great result for Priory’s Character and Culture in a week where UK football has shown what it’s all about.

Team: B Withers, J Fisher, L Freeman, J Myerscough, D Dowson, C Dowd, C Lee, J Attwood, J Paynter, J Aubrey Williams, E Britton, S Wong, B Ascroft.

Thank you to family and friends that went to UCLan to watch the games.
