English Schools National First Round Under 16 Football -Sirius vs St.Bedes
The Under 16 (Year 11) Football team started the new campaign with a resounding 7 - 1 away victory over St.Bede's of Scunthorpe in the ESFA National competition.
The teams had met last season and due to a comfortable victory the match was met by some Sirius players with an air of complacency!
This was proven to be the case when against the run of play, a costly error ensured we were one nil down.
The team equalised just before half-time through Kieren Easter after having squandered a number of chances.
A half-time score line of 1-1 was not what we had anticipated!
A second-half response was required!
The team responded in the second half concentrating more on their football than on individual opponents and further goals from Easter, Sam Leach (2),Liam Harris, Kieron Jones, and Brandon Hepworth ensured a comfortable first round win.
The boys will now meet Wolfreton or Beverley Longcroft in the second round.
Please praise the boys for their efforts.
Thanks to Dean Jennings for his support with the team.
