Marshalls Park and Sanders enjoy Lycamobile Cup experience
Local pupils got the chance to play at West Ham United’s famous Boleyn Ground at the Lycamobile Cup at the weekend.
Marshalls Park’s year sevens had won their qualifying tournament last month and gave the eventual winners a run for their money before finishing seventh in their category.
PE teacher Paul Aylett said: “It was a great experience to be one of the last teams to play at the Boleyn. Although the boys were missing Freddie Potts they played well in stages over the seven games.
“Sonny Davie grabbed a goal for us and we went close against the eventual winners.”
The year nine team from Sanders also competed and progress leader Sinead Nicholson said: “The players all received a kit each and a very big thank you to the supporters who came along. They were fantastic, we had really great support,”
Sanders: Max Massow, George Matthew, Zac O’Hallaran, Joseph Madzokere, Toheeb Gbadamosi, Tosin Ahove, Matthew Burke.
