Cirencester Academy come home with the Cup

English Schools SFA Under 18 Colleges Trophy Final 

Cirencester Academy 3 - 0 Balby Carr College

Cirencester Academy travelled to Macclesfield Town FC to play the Cup Final of the English Schools FA Under 18 Colleges Trophy against Balby Carr College, Doncaster.

Cirencester attacked immediately from the kick off after a fine ball by Sam Farr put through striker Jack Smith but he narrowly failed to lift the ball over the advancing keeper which would have given an early lead.

Gradually Balby Carr came in to the game and created several chances but were denied by two fantastic saves by goalkeeper Harry Ellis and goal line clearances by full back Adam Mace. Just before the interval Jack Smith fired over the bar after good work and a cross by winger Josh Morse.

The score remained 0-0 at half time.

Cirencester started the 2nd half on the offensive immediately putting the Balby Carr defence under pressure with Joe Shepherd heading in a corner from Brad Hooper, 1-0.  

Balby Carr then put the Cirencester defence under severe pressure from corners and free kicks but they held firm. Cirencester increased their lead when substitute Danny Hale beat two defenders and calmly lobbed the ball over the advancing keeper.

Balby Carr were now desperately trying to score and Cirencester scored their 3rd goal on a counter attack when Danny Hale passed the ball to Adam Mace who calmly slotted the ball home to make the score 3-0.

Cirencester College Team: Harry Ellis, Joe Woodley, Adam Mace, Sam Farr, Tom Glass, Adam Cooke, James Piatek, Joe Shepherd, Jack Smith, Brad Hooper, Josh Morse, Danny Hale, Niaoki Montoya, Ben Deakin, Dan Roberts, Joe Blackford.
