Year 8 Football
The Y8 football team have continued to show their growing potential by reaching the final of the Town Cup, by beating QEGS 4-2. This meant, along with the Y7 team, they reached the final to be played at Blackburn Rovers FC, Ewood Park. Goals from Kyle Maquarrie (2), Rio Aslton and Josh Bell.
Their success was also documented in the local paper and a professional photographer was on hand to capture some wonderful pictures.

A personal of mine shows we even kick our own team mates to get the win! #teamvale
The team have also reached the semi final of the Lancashire County cup in a very close 1-0 win over St.Marys from Blackpool. A very late goal from Max Dunn and some resilient defending in the last 5 minutes saw the boys win an enthralling and tight game. This is a competition that Vale have only won 3 times across all year groups in our entire history and I was proud of the team to give them a fantastic opportunity to make it 4 times.
I know they are all extremely disappointed with the prospect of not playing either of these games for the chance of glory, but I have reassured them that they have deserved to be in this position, and are winners in mine, the school’s and their parents’ eyes. #teamvale
