The school football team were involved in a thrilling first match of the season, away against Maple in the Wiz County Cup. Maple started brightly and went into a two goal lead, but Louis pulled a goal back and then George scored twice to give Skyswood a 3-2 lead at half-time. A spirited Maple team came back into the game early in the second half and levelled the score. Maple then took the lead for the second time in the match before Skyswood rallied to make another great comeback. Louis’ shot was handled in the area and George completed his hat-trick from the spot. Skyswood then secured the victory when George S scored his first goal for the first team on his Skyswood debut. Congratulations must go to all of the team: Luke, Michael, Nick, George I, Louis, Toby, Cameron, George S and Joe. Everybody played their part in a magnificent match. We now look forward to playing Aboyne Lodge at home in our first league match of the season next Tuesday. Due to the fact that this match is on a Tuesday, next week’s school football club will unfortunately have to be cancelled, although club members may wish to come along and support the team.
