On Monday 26th November Year 7 boys played a very strong Varndean team away from home.
With 100% effort from every single boy, our team performed really well against a tough opposition and came out of the game with a point and a great result. In the first half Connor gave us the lead but Varndean got back on level terms with an equaliser.
The score was tied at 1-1 at half-time but we came out even stronger in the second half and just minutes in Richmond ran straight through on goal turning to the right and sending it into the top corner with the outside of his foot. Unfortunately we were pegged back to 2-2 as Varndean equalised again but it was good to think we were never behind to such a strong opponent.
The match ended in a very tight 2-2 draw, thanks to our strong defence including Elliot, Noah and Jake, all three of whom made some great challenges and interceptions to help us with the result. A big thank you to all the boys, who when they were off the pitch gave great support and encouragement.
Finally a big thank you to Mr Thomsett for taking us there alone and his help and advice.
