On Friday night, the Y7 Football team took part in the champions cup final at South Leeds Stadium against Ilkley Grammar School. To qualify the competiton you have to finish in the top 2 of your league, which we won, and then progress through a further 3 rounds of knockout matches to reach the final.
The final score was 5-0, and to say the lads had played well was an understatement.
