Year 11 Bristol Schools Football Final.
Unfortunately the year 11 boys football team agonisingly lost their cup final yesterday to a last minute goal by Ashton Park, losing 1-2.
It was a titanic battle, both teams working hard to create chances in very wet conditions. Cotham defended tenaciously in the first half and went in at half time 0-0. However at the start of the second half Ashton Park scored from a well worked move.
With a change in formation, Cotham picked themselves up and began to dominant and were rewarded when Olly Southwell flicked the ball in at the near post from a free kick.
With a minute remaining, Cotham conceded a free kick on the edge of their box which was superbly curled into the bottom corner.
I am really proud of the boys having coached them right from year 7 and seen how they have developed into an excellent team. They should be proud of their efforts and look back with fond memories of their time playing together at Cotham.
Unlucky boys but I'm still proud of everyone of you.
