Victory for Harrogate Grammar School senior football team

23 May 2016

The Harrogate Grammar School Senior Football team have been victorious in winning the U18 Yorkshire County Cup by beating Stokesley School 6-3 in a pulsating final held at York City’s ground.

Harrogate Grammar School (HGS) got off to a flying start with goals from Patrick Mayhew, Louis Maurice and a screamer from Joe Dorkings. With only a few moments left of the half a delicate chip over an advancing keeper by Joe Dorkings, after a sumptuous move, gave HGS a comfortable 4-0 half time lead.

Just after half time with the score at 4-0, HGS made a triple substitution and as the boys settled into the new formation Stokesley suddenly pounced with two quick goals. Rob Worrall steadied the ship with a wonderfully finished tap in from a great move.

Stokesley did not want to lie down and rallied again scoring with still 15 minutes to go to make it 5-3 to HGS. The HGS defence was steadied after this and Stokesley never threatened again. A quick counter attacking move towards the end of the game saw Joe Dorkings and Christian King combine to put the finishing touches to a well worked goal, Christian King getting the final touch to make the final score 6-3.

Congratulations to all who played in this game and to all who played throughout the season.
