King's College Footballers Make History
King’s College footballers have reached the quarterfinal stages of two English Schools Football Association (ESFA) competitions for the first time in the school’s history.
The Girls’ U15 side travelled to the south coast where they beat Bournemouth School 3-1. Victoria Neuefeind scored all of the King’s College goals.
As a result, the team will now progress through to the last eight of the ESFA PlayStation Schools Cup competition, which involves over 256 schools from all sectors competing for the title.
The Boys’ U16 side hosted Stonehenge School from Salisbury, beating them 4-0 to reach the last eight of the ESFA Premier League Cup competition.King’s goals included a first half hat-trick from William Brooke-Webb, which gave his side a 3-0 lead at the break. In the second half, Joe Gill added a fourth.
The Boys’ U16s will now play at home to King Edward’s School from Witley in Surrey in the next round.
Chris Heayns, Director of Football at King’s College, said: “This is a fantastic situation for King’s to be in. This is the first ever time in which we have reached the latter stages of any English Schools’ FA competition, so to have two teams through is excellent.”
“Both the girls’ and the boys’ teams have played really well throughout the season and are thoroughly deserving of their success. With their coaches they have all worked very hard at their games and have made the most of the opportunities that have been offered to them.”
