Year 11 Boys Merseyside County Schools FA Cup Winners
The U16 Merseyside Cup final was played on 5/7/22, held over as we could not play the final before the GCSE exams started. Blue Coat played Ridgeway HS at the Tranmere Rovers Solar Campus.
Blue Coat won 4-3 in an enthralling game.
Losing at Half time 1-0 we equalized through a penalty from Henry Noon. Max O`Connell scored 2 quick goals to put BC 3-1 ahead. Ridgeway, with 10 minutes to go pulled a goal back with a penalty and scored the equaliser within minutes.
Within minutes of that setback, the BC boys created a counter-attack which led to Jabril Jan being brought down, again in the penalty area. Henry Noon stepped up to score his second penalty of the game and the winning goal.
After 5 years together it was a most fitting finale for the boys, being their last game together as a school team. It has been a wonderful last 5 years watching the boys develop not just as footballers but as young adults.
