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.
