On a weekend of shock results - Guam beating India, Faroe Islands beating Greece, England winning another match (with Rooney scoring!) - another shock upset as the Alumni got the better of the Staff, proving that youth and enthusiasm can sometimes triumph over skill and experience (and lack of fitness). Despite winning the second half 1-0, the Staff team defence was leakier than a Swiss cheese rowing boat in the first half, meaning the game ended in a 4-2 victory for the Alumni. They were presented with a beautiful new trophy, befitting of such a prestigious event, by Dr Kennard.
Despite a roasting hot day, there was a good turn out from players and spectators, and the game was both competitive and played in good spirits. The trophy will remain in school at the request of the Alumni in order to remind Staff every day of this painful defeat .... and give them an incentive to train harder for next time.
Many thanks to all for taking part - Alumni, Staff, Year 13s, plus supporters / hecklers. It was great fun, good to see everyone and Staff are looking forward to a rematch and revenge!
