Year 8 Boys Football

The Year 8 Football team continued their good form with a convincing victory over Great Barr, which saw them progress into the semi finals of the Erdington & Saltley District Cup.

The first half was a scrappy affair, with rare moments of brilliance, however, NBA did score three goals, one of which was a true moment of brilliance, when Deago Martin turned and hit an unstoppable 25 yard volley over the keeper.

After Mr Conibere's half time team talk, the team went out for the second half and started to show the form that had made them double winners in the previous season. Despite scoring a solitary goal in the second half, the standard of play from NBA was much improved, and they fully deserved their win.

Goal scorers: Deago Martin 3, Tyler Langley 1

Men of the Match: Shemmi Glasgow-Powell/ Tyler Langley

Big thanks to Miss Poppleton for her referee skills, and for the large crowd that turned up to support!!!
