A Weekend of Wins
What a weekend for Year 11 Charlie Oakwell-Boulton! Not only did he play in the English Schools FA National Cup Final on 11 May at Stoke City’s stadium, he was captain, they won 1-0 against Nottinghamshire Schools FA, and Charlie was named Player of the Match. And to top it off, on Sunday he went to collect his League Winners Medal with his local U18s Chichester team.
Charlie said, “It was a huge experience for me being captain for the first time in such a prestigious match. There was a big build up to the final, when we thought we would be playing against Merseyside, but then Nottinghamshire won on penalties to get through. It was a massive pitch at Stoke - half of us got cramp! But it was absolutely great to win!”
