The year 8 Boys’ football team have enjoyed a successful end to the season. The season started off with a convincing win over Bedale, in the quarterfinals of the area cup. The semi-final turned out to be a bye into the final where Richmond awaited. In the final the boys started off well, having the better of the play in the first half, but unfortunately conceded just before half-time to go in 1-0 down.
The second half started off well. The boys got themselves back into it and then into the lead, 2-1. A lapse of concentration lead to Richmond equalising again, but this equaliser was just what they needed to rally again and pull away to win 6-2. A good result against a good Richmond team and the area cup won for Stokesley.
