The Sharples’ Year 8 football team (pictured above) took on Canon Slade on Monday night in a 4-2 thriller. Sharples took the lead early in the first half through Ayaan, slotting home from a fantastic ball by Amaan. Canon Slade then responded with an outstanding free kick. Just before halftime Sharples conceded a goal, from another fantastic long range effort, making it 2-1.
The team showed great levels of resilience to fight back in the second half with Muhammad starting the half with a goal, pulling it back to 2-2. As the game went on Ayaan shone and managed to bag himself 2 more goals. The final score was 4-2 to Sharples. A great result from the boys but ‘man of the match’ has to go to our hat trick hero Ayaan.
