Year 7 through to 5th Round of National Cup
Our Year 7 football team competed in the 4th round of the ESFA cup vs a strong St John’s Middle (Bromsgrove) school team. The first half was very even with both teams having chances, but Aldridge took the lead through T Attridge with a well taken finish. A mix up in defence allowed St John’s to sneak an equaliser before half time.
In the second half Aldridge took over the game imposing ourselves with some fantastic football. Fantastic goals from T Machisa (2), O Hughes and a superb header from J Grainger-Bradley put Aldridge into a comfortable lead. Then just before the end of the game some very good footwork from the St John’s winger allowed them to get a consolation goal.
5-2 victory means that Aldridge move on to the 5th round against another tough opponent in St Peter’s Catholic High School (Gloucester). Well done Year 7, keep working hard and doing all of us proud!!!
