The RPA Year 8 Football Team played Grey Court on Tuesday 19 March in a closely contested game.  Unfortunately RPA lost 6-0 but this result did not really reflect the nature and the manner in which the game was played.

For the first 20 minutes it could have gone either way with both teams having numerous opportunities to score.  Just before half time Grey Court scored two opportunist goals in quick succession which affected RPA’s composure and momentum.  Ten minutes into the second half RPA conceded a third goal, after which their overall shape of play left a lot to be desired.

Despite this loss, congratulations must be given to all squad members who managed to reach the Richmond Borough Final.  The Year 7 duo of Kiyo and Dylan gave very impressive performances and shared the Man of the Match award.  Once again a special thanks to Mr Chevous for his support and advice.

Squad: Alban, Josh, Tommy, Alfie, Yisrael, Qerim, Daniel, Tainton, David, Nick, Dylan, Kiyo, Mason E. and Mason P. Thanks Nick Roberts
