Bradley Stoke Community School’s (BSCS’s) Year 10 Boys football team have been crowned Gloucestershire County Champions, capping a fantastic season that also saw them reach the last-16 stage of the English Schools FA Cup.
The team’s latest success comes after they beat St Bede’s 5-4 in the final of the Bristol and South Gloucestershire Schools’ League. This was followed up by a hard fought 2-1 win against Chosen Hill (winners of the North Gloucester Schools’ League) in a play-off for the County Championship title.
The boys also recently beat Redland Green 4-1 in the semi-final of the Woodcock Shield (a knock out cup competition for all the Year 10 school teams in Bristol and South Gloucestershire).
They are now preparing for the Shield final, which will be played after half-term.
In a letter to the parents of the Year 10 Boys team members, Andy Young, head of PE at the school, wrote:
“I wanted to let you know how proud I am of the achievements of this special group of young men. Mr Randall [PE teacher] has worked tirelessly with this team and we have both enjoyed watching their progress and celebrating their fantastic achievements this year.”
