Year 7 Boys Football - League Champions and District Cup Finalists

STACS 3-2 Turves Green Boys (Double Header; League and Cup Semi-Final)

STACS claimed two prizes on Tuesday 4th April. By beating Turves Green (TGB) they are in the final of the district cup, to be played in May, and have won the league this season. In what was a poor performance in comparison to previous games, Tommies showed enough strength to battle through to a hard fought victory.

TGB took the lead early on in the game, following a dominating performance with the ball. Their goal came from the corner following a STACS error. Despite hardly having any of the ball, within 30 seconds of the restart we equalised. A brilliantly taken goal from Jack Bradley. TGB continued to control possession but were restricted to long range efforts. Any work from Tommies was on the counter attack. These counters paid dividends towards the very end of the half when Jack Bradley again unleashed an effort on goal and scored. 2-1 at the break.

At half time the lads spoke about how poor they were, and agreed that they needed to improve in the second half. We started the second half strongly and our fast breaking tactics became worthwhile when Sheikh Mbowe scored a well taken goal to make it 3-1. TGB did not stop and continued knocking on the door and got a goal back with 8 minutes to go. In the end, 8 minutes were a few too many for TGB and STACS stumbled over the line to the final and to claim the league title for this year. Well done STACS - onto the final now!
