Football Team in County Quarter Finals

Skyswood’s excellent season was reflected in their    progress to the Quarter Finals of both the St Albans City Cup and the Wix County Cup. Despite a superb performance, they lost out to Bernards Heath on both occasions, by 2-1 in the City Cup and 1-0 in the County Cup. The team matched Bernards Heath in all areas, fighting back from two goals down in the first match and losing out in the last minute of the County Cup game despite being arguably the stronger side. The County Quarter-Finals were played in three pools of three schools, with the winners of each group and ‘highest placed runners-up’ going through to the finals. Our second match in the pool was against a strong and very physical team from Grenaway. The whole team gave another performance to be proud of. It’s a fantastic achievement when you consider that, out of nearly 500 schools in Hertfordshire, Skyswood were the only one-form entry school to reach the last nine of the County Cup!
