Boys 1st XI Football Team Through To The Semis In The ISFA Trophy
Many congratulations to the Boys 1st XI Football team on an excellent Quarter Final 1-0 win in the Independent Schools Football Association’s U18 Trophy.
Having overcome University College School on penalties in a nail biting first round match, the team then beat Abingdon School 4-1 in the second round to qualify for the Quarter Final.
On Tuesday 30 January, they hosted Berkhamsted School at home in an evenly matched cup game. Both teams had good spells of possession but Princethorpe’s winning goal came just after half time when Joe Bird scored from a free kick. Joel Nicoll came close when he hit the bar from a header but the score remained at 1-0 until the final whistle.
A fantastic gritty effort from the boys means that the team have now reached the semi-finals. A huge well done to them all!
