Bootham School 1st XI FOOTBALL TEAM WIN THE YORK & DISTRICT CUP and present a cup for future winners!
The Bootham School 1st XI football team made school history in the York & District Cup final at the close of the season. It was the first time that an Under 18 Bootham team qualified to play at this level. The boys were facing a tough task against a Fulford team that comfortably won their semi-final 5-0 against Sherburn. Bootham had a perfect start, and the match saw a spirited Bootham team take control of the game. The final score was 3-1 which Head of Boys’ PE, Andy Bell, described as
A fully deserved result and a fantastic achievement for a great group of lads.
But this particular league has never been honoured with a trophy, and so to celebrate their winning achievement the Bootham Team decided to present themselves with a cup which can be handed on to future winners. Andy Bell went on to say
we plan to see Bootham’s name appear again, in future years, on the winners’ engraving – and that’s the challenge for next year’s squad!
