This week our Year 9 team travelled to Essa to play on their floodlit 4G Astro turf. The game started well as Sharples had a few early attacks with Amir Adam and Jordan Duffy going close. Unfortunately, Sharples then went into self destruct mode in what could only be described as a disastrous fifteen minutes in which Essa put the game to bed. Half time was much needed for the team to regroup and go out in the second half with more confidence. The team competed well in the second half and deserved their consolation goal through Lewis Aston.

The Year 7 football team were in action on Thursday night in a five-a-side tournament. The team only missed out on making the final on goal difference. In their last game, Matthew Senior dramatically scored a last second goal to beat Westhoughton 3-2. The goal of the tournament was scored by Taylor Biggar, smashing the ball in from his own half.
