Year 11/Under 16's Super Cup Final

Buoyed by their emphatic 5-2 victory on Friday at Sutton Town FC’s stadium Campion’s Year 11 side entered this affair upbeat and optimistic. Could Adam ‘The Admin’ Evans continue his rich vein of form as a successful Campion manager to provide a stern examination of the opponents?

The Campionites finally found themselves present in the pinnacle of school football, for their final ever school game. Standing in their way was an equally confident King Edward’s Aston side as their respective counterparts. Campion started the game on the front foot with midfield trio of Keane Yapp, Craig Chirata & Kieran McElwaine impressing their authority against their opposition counterparts. Within 10 minutes Campion took the upper hand as a smart turn and finish from bull-like centre forward Chris Pollard pegged back KEA early on in the match making it 1-0 Campion.

At this point it looked Campion’s for the taking. However, KEA was not going down without a fight. With the introduction of former Campion student Chisom Afoka to their right wing the momentum swung in King Edward’s favour. As the half wore on Campion squandered chances in front of goal and before half-time paid the price as they conceded a penalty, which was expertly dispatched leaving Campion keeper Connor McGuinness no chance. Half-time honours even 1-1.

In order to re-assert their authority Mr A. Evans administered a couple of tactical substitutions at half-time. Again, it was the midfield trio of Campion who started to string together passes which found Pollard alone again upfront. Although his first effort was saved, the ball fell back to him to be bundled over the line to make it 2-1 Campion.

However, as the half wore on the fitness levels of KEA began to show as their wingers pulled the Campion back line out of shape, to then level the game up at 2-2. Which was how it would remain until the final whistle. Extra-time loomed.

With 70 minutes of football unable to separate the two teams, a further 15 minutes would be played. Bodies were battered and bruised, and legs were waning. Campion forced a corner which ensued a goal mouth scramble, before the ball fell to Goffe on the edge of the area who could only blaze his effort over the bar. Again, KEA came at Campion and this time managed to break the deadlock, not once but twice for extra-time to finish King Edward’s Aston 4-2 St Edmund Campion.
