Year 8 District Champions!
Our Year 8 boys football team capped an impressive season this week by winning the Havant District Cup Final 5-1 against Cowplain.
Following on from their League victory earlier in the year, the boys despatched valiant opposition in front of a packed Petersfield Town FC Love Lane stadium.
Captain George Milner-Smith opened the scoring in the first 20 minutes with an impressive overhead kick before Mark Butcher lobbed the Cowplain keeper from 18 yards. Butcher, who was a thorn in the side of the Cowplain defence all game, went on to complete his hat trick with two more coolly finished goals. Cowplain showed small signs of a comeback late in the second half when they latched on to a deep diagonal cross, confusing the TPS defence. However The Petersfield lads made sure of victory when Stan Lyons clinched a final goal, following some great link up play down the right-hand flank.
The boys have shown a tremendous attitude all season and are already looking forward to the challenges that await them next year!
