Last week Birkdale competed in the only national ISFA (Independent Schools Football Association) cup.

The U15’s travelled to Bootham School, York in the first round. They were losing 2-0 at half time and then went 3-0 down just after the break, but then completed an amazing fight-back with Hayden scoring the winning goal in the last minute to make it 4-3. A fabulous afternoon that demonstrated how quickly sport can change and why you should never give up!

The 1st X1 team also beat Trent College 3-2 in a real humdinger of a match.

The boys are now looking forward to their 2nd round game away at Bolton School on the 14th Oct.
