Under 15 National Cup Football (Round 6)
Match date: 10th January 2017
It was a disappointing result in Round 6 of the PlayStation Schools’ Cup for the Under 15s – a team who have continually upped their game with each round of the competition this season.
The visiting team opened the scoring early on, but Weatherhead responded almost immediately, with some quick thinking from Fleetwood and Moran to level the scoring. A fantastic and fiercely contested first half with action on both ends of the pitch saw the scores level and both teams hungry for the win.
Despite giving everything they had, Weatherhead was unable to combat the flurry of goals scored in quick succession by the visiting team early in the second half. The Under 15s worked fearlessly hard to close the growing gap, however, Sandbach came into their own to comfortably claim the victory and a spot in the quarter finals.
Huge commiserations to this squad, who achieved their best placing to date in the competition, ending their national cup campaign in the last 16 of 300 teams throughout the country!
