Year 7 Maidstone Cup Winners!

Our Year 7 football team won the Maidstone Cup in a tense final against Cornwallis...


Our Year 7 boys' football team went to Maidstone's Gallagher Stadium to take part in the final against Cornwallis School on Monday. On a very tight pitch, Valley Park controlled large parts of the game through the slick passing of James France, Charlie Weston and Daniel Oxley. 

Valley went 2-1 up with a goal-of-the-season strike from Sam Ford. However, in the last minute the referee awarded a dubious penalty which sent the game to extra time and then penalties. Through the quality goalkeeping of Kyle McLeish, and the steady nerves of our Year 7 players, Jacob Crisp stepped up to take the final penalty. Cool, calm and collected, he slid the ball into the corner to win the trophy for the mighty Valley Park.

Congratulations to the whole team on an inspiring victory!
