St Christopher Boys Football Team Safely Through in the Cup.

2015-11-16 15.20.01The St Christopher boys football team have reached the next round of the Harry Shaw Cup competition following a comfortable home win. John Shelton Primary – playing in red – got the first half underway beneath dark, cloudy, grey skies and launched a series of early attacks. It took several minutes before the home team settled and began to create the first of several chances that began to trouble the John Shelton defence. The pressure began to build on the visitors before St Christopher finally broke the deadlock half way through the first half. The goal opened the floodgates and half-time arrived with the home 7-0 ahead courtesy of Sam (4) Lewis (2) and Lewys(1)  Mr Coyle made changes to the team at the start of the second half as St Christopher edged further ahead with two more goals from Sam (1) and Lewis (1) To their credit John Shelton battled away showing great spirit and teamwork to the very end of the game. At the final whistle both teams lined up on the halfway line showing great sportsmanship and respect for each other as they shook hands. St Christopher progress to the next round and await the draw to find out who they will face.
