Five Acres High School

Year 8 Boys F.A Cup

Our year 8 boys have now progressed through to the last eight of the English Schools F.A Cup after beating an impressive Wolverhampton Grammar School 4-3 in a very entertaining game. 

Five Acres started strongly going 2-0 up however Wolverhampton brought one back to make it 2-1 at half time. The second half was full of entertainment and was a great battle between two really strong sides. Wolverhampton pulled another back to take it to 2-2, Five Acres almost immediately made it 3-2. Again after a lot of counter attacking by both teams Wolverhampton made it 3-3 and it looked as though it was going to go to extra-time however Five Acres managed to score in with the very last kick of the game.

It was a fantastic team performance with every player doing their job- write from our goalkeeper Dan Giles who made some great saves, all the way through our defence and midfield to our strikers who scored the four goals. Caidan Jones had a hat-trick with a strong performance and Dan Hardy scored the other.

The quarter-finals are yet to be published but the road so far has been successful. In Round 1 we beat Aylestone School from Hereford 11-1, in Round 2 we beat Gloucester Academy 13-1, in Round 3 we beat Catshill Middle School from Bromsgrove 5-4, and finally beating Wolverhampton Grammar School takes us into the quarter finals.
