Congratulations to the Year 11 Football Team!
The weather was a bit chilly down in Lancing at the Sussex FA County Ground but the atmosphere soon hotted up as the County Cup final started just as the sun was setting.
From the off, it was clear that both teams had come to win and it was a hard fought battle from start to finish. But the Downlands team are exceptional and have been since Year 7 when they came together under the expert guidance of their brilliant coach Kyle Lusk.
It was a joy to watch as the boys came together and played as a team, passing expertly with elegance and ease. Attack after attack saw the score at 6-0 at the end of the first half but Durrington came out of the break determined to fight on. And they did but our boys are stronger! Angus Hill, the goalie, made a couple of excellent saves in the second half to keep a clean sheet. We were mesmerised by the skill of our team from our solid defence to the hard work of the wingers and mid field. Adam Lindo scored a hat trick with other goals from Tom Roberts and Oli Munt.
The final score was 7-0 to Downlands. Well done lads!
The Downlands Year 11 Football Team is Angus Hill, Josh Hickingbotham, Logan Lee, Dexter Webb, Cam West, Sam Wright, Oli Munt, Ed Turns, Shay Leahy (captain), Tom Roberts, Oli Charlesworth, Charlie Jones, Oli Appaya, James Demetriades, Adam Lindo and Luke Goff.
