Spelthorne Schools’ Cup Final

Spelthorne Schools’ Cup Final


The Matthew Arnold School - 4, The Bishop Wand School - 3


What a fantastic final between the two top teams in Spelthorne!


Matthew Arnold took the lead via Jack Cayley before Bishop Wand equalised. Ross Fleming restored our lead to give us a 2-1 half-time lead. Ross scored again and when Ashley Parslow made it 4-1, it looked all over. However, Bishop Wand came back into the game with two goals to make it 4-3. With 15 minutes to go one of our players was sent off following a last man tackle.


The 10 players defended magnificently in a tense last few minutes and the team were grateful to goalkeeper Andrew Searle for a fantastic last-minute save. Bishop Wand were worthy opponents.


The team end up unbeaten having won the league, cup and district 6-a-sides.


These have been a brilliant set of players and are a real credit to the year group and to the school.
