PlayStation F.C. U15 Schools’ Cup- Dronfield Henry Fanshawe School 1 King James School 2

Two first half goals saw King James School advance to the last four of the Under 15 cup on a wintery afternoon in North Derbyshire. 

Having arrived to the sight of staff clearing a layer of snow from the pitch it was the visitors who got off to a fast start, Cameron Leverton scoring from inside the area to give the Knaresborough side a 1-0 lead early in the contest. 

They doubled that lead before the interval when Ben Tweed slotted home a penalty kick following a foul in the box and King James went into the break 2-0 in front. 

With the rain now falling steadily it was the home side who had to find a way back into the game and they performed much better in the second half although it was late in the game before the found the net. 

A cross into the box was mis-handled by the keeper and the ball was bundled home from close range to halve the deficit and ignite the hopes of a comeback. 

Try as they might the hosts could not find an equaliser and it was King James who took the semi final place on offer and a trip to Wade Deacon High School awaits. 

Another excellent cup tie played in the right spirit and credit goes to both sides for the entertaining match in horrible weather.
