It’s coming home!
After a year of fixtures and tournaments, the Year 10 boys were invited into a semi-final of the New Horizon Sports Cup. Shortly after this invitation, we were informed we would be facing local rivals Aston Manor Academy. With the knowledge from previous league games that Aston Manor had a good squad, the Year 10 boys were excited but nervous, knowing this would be their last tournament of the academic year. Two-legs were played, in the first match Heartlands led 1-0, with a goal from Rafal Zagacki. However, after a few mistakes in the final parts of the game, Aston Manor equalised to make the score ending as a 1-1 draw.
The second leg was played two weeks after this, now with Mohsin and Ricki featuring in the first 11. This game was a huge success, with a final score of 7-3 to Heartlands! Goals from Mohsin (x2), Ricki (x2), Sohel, Rafal and Gerson secured this fantastic win. The Year 10 boys showed fantastic teamwork and passion throughout the game and the final score reflects this.
