ESFA Match Report- PlayStation F.C. U15 Schools Cup for Boys- Cardinal Newman Catholic School v Repton School

Repton School had to come from behind twice to continue their run in the Under 15 Schools Cup in a tough end to end classic in Coventry. 

Their opponents, Cardinal Newman Catholic School, gave last seasons Under 14 Small Schools Cup Champions a real test in the freezing rain with the weather forcing the game to be played on 3G after the school pitch was deemed unplayable. 

A Luke Bahia double had twice pulled Repton back on level terms after Newman had edged in front early in each half sending the game to extra time. In a cup tie with chances at either end it was Repton who finally won it with the winner coming from Alfie Riley with the clock ticking down towards a penalty shoot-out.

Despite Newman throwing everything forward in the closing stages it was the visitors who claimed a place in round 6, surviving a late corner kick with almost every player within 12 yards of the Repton goal in a last gasp attempt to force an equaliser.
