Year 9 Secure a Place in the Spen Valley Cup Semi-Final

Our Year 9 football team played Westborough in the ¼ final of the Spen Valley Cup defending the trophy they won last season.

Heckmondwike made a slow start after their long winter break and Westborough took an early lead. This seemed to spark Heckmondwike into life and the equalising goal soon arrived. Harry Hobson used his space and skill to run rings around the Westborough defense and Rahul Ho-Shing was dominant in centre midfield. Two further goals gave Heckmondwike a 3-1 lead at the interval.

Heckmondwike started the second half in a positive fashion and did not let some industrial challenges put them off their game. Further goals were added by Fiad Elmubarak, Rahul Ho-Shing and Raheem Miller with a Rabona style penalty, to leave the final score 7-1.

Well done to all of the players for their efforts,

The team will now face BBG in the semi-final.
