Year 7 Football Team Into ESFA Cup Fourth Round

Wingfield’s Year 7 team progressed to the fourth round of the English Schools Cup with a sensational 9-6 victory at Wickersley on Wednesday evening.

With the scores tied at 6-6 following Irfan Bogle’s last second free kick to take the game into extra time, a calm and measured final 14 minutes saw the boys score three goals to get past the third stage of the nationwide competition.

In one of the most enthralling matches the Academy has ever witnessed, Wingfield took the lead four times at 2-0, 3-2, 4-3, and 5-4 before trailing 6-5 late on.

But with the last kick of the game, Irfan Bogle’s free kick gave the boys the least they deserved with a period of extra time, before three goals saw Wingfield eventually sail through the third round of the competition.

Adrian Nguea scored four goals, Jack Dudhill and Irfan two apiece, with Maddox Brooks also on the scoresheet.

The fourth round draw will be made on Monday 19th November.

Year 7 Boys Into Next Round of ESFA Cup

Wingfield Academy’s Year 7 Boys progressed to the next round of the English Schools’ FA Cup with a comprehensive 7-2 home victory against Oakwood High School.

Jack Dudhill was the standout player in an excellent team performance, notching four goals on his way to the hotly contested man of the match award with a stellar all-round performance, while Irfan Bogle scored the goal of the afternoon with an inswinging free kick from well outside the area.

Despite suffering an early setback with Oakwood opening the scoring, Wingfield showed resilience to dig in and never looked back once the scores were level, carrying a two goal lead into the break at 3-1.

Lesser teams may have relaxed and let the opponents back into the match but Wingfield extended their lead with all 14 squad players playing a key role in the victory which sees the boys head into the next stage of the competition.
