TWBS – Year 11b vs Hampton Football National Cup Oct 7, 2021
On Wednesday the Year 11b team played their first ever football National Cup game against Hampton. This was not only the first Year 11b game but also the first time some of the boys had represented Windsor Boys at football. This showed in the first ten minutes with Windsor on the back foot and Hampton pushing for a goal.
However as time went on, Windsor grew in confidence and built from the back with solid work from Archie Daines, Matthew Schofield and Peter Brant. Sadly after a mix up at a corner Hampton went into half time 1-0 up.
The second half started much better when Windsor started to take control of the game with chances for Charlie Reid, Leo Godwin and Woody Larkin but with the attacking spirit, Windsor left themselves open at the back and conceded a second. The Boys’ School did get one back with a great strike from Charlie Reid but Hampton then took their chances at the end and ran out 4-1 winners.
The boys should be very proud of there efforts and on another day the results could have been very different.
