CARDINAL HUME 2 v 1 ST ROBERT
Congratulations to our year 9 football team who won the county cup by beating our dear rivals from St Robert’s by 2 goals to 1 in their game at Durham City . It marks the first time one of our teams have won the county cup so it represents a key point in the school sporting history.
In a match played on one of the warmest April nights since St George was a lad, it must be said that the conduct of both teams was a credit to schools football. Goals from Joe Arnott and Jake Howard either side of a St Robert’s equaliser meant victory was ours. We dominated the game for large periods and only some outstanding saves from the St Robert’s keeper kept them in the game. The final whistle brought about joyous scenes from the boys as they realised the scale of their achievement in winning an unprecedented treble having already won the Gateshead schools cup and league double.
A big thank you to the members of staff who supported the team in such a tremendous fashion.
