Our football team performed valiantly at today's final event of the season, the District Cup. Everyone put in 100% effort and can be proud of their attitude and performance as they progressed through the competition.
In the group stages, the team started brightly with a 6-0 victory against Deerhurst. This was followed by a narrow 1-0 defeat to Tewkesbury C. of E., a game in which Tirlebrook dominated possession and chances. It was settled by a fine strike from one of C. of E.'s few advances on goal. The final game saw Queen Margaret's beaten by a 2-0 scoreline and a semi-final place secured. This followed and it was another very closely contested game, the team narrowly missed out on reaching the final, losing 1-0 when it really could have gone either way. In the bronze medal match, Tirlebrook ran out 5-0 victors against Carrant Brook.
The team could give no more in terms of effort, determination, skill and endeavour and should be proud of their 3rd place finish. There really was nothing to choose between the best three teams this season; it just didn't go for us as we would have liked. Congratulations to the eventual winners, Twyning, and well done to our team - we are proud of you!
Team: Jack Pates (captain), Aaron Lund, Louis Corless, Charlie Etheridge, Charlie Kendrick, Finley Gardiner, Joel Hughes, William Gosden, Oisin Moseley.
