NOTTINGHAM SFA NEWS
Two City Schools’ representative sides travelled to Barnsley for games in the West Yorkshire Leagues. The Under 11s preparing for their West Yorkshire Cup Final early next month against Leeds had an easy victory scoring five goals in the first 20 minutes and adding three more before the end to win 8-0.
The Under 13s who have been steadily improving during the Spring months recorded their third win of the season with a 2-1 win over their Yorkshire opponents. Two players from Trinity school netted their goals with Charlie Wood beating two defenders and striking a strong shot past the keeper. His colleague Tighe Duffy gave the Nottingham side a 2-0 lead and they had a third effort from Oba Julius (Nottingham Academy) disallowed for offside.
After the break, Barnsley fought back well to reduce the arrears but could not breach theCity’s defence who were mainly responsible for their narrow win.
