Year 8: Kent Cup 1st Round - Cornwallis vs Norton Knatchbull

This was the year 8 team’s first 11 a-side fixture and they were up against a strong and physical Norton Knatchbull side. Norton Knatchbull started strongly, dominating the play for much of the first half, eventually scoring two well deserved goals. Cornwallis showed plenty of fighting spirit and had chances themselves, squandering two great chances before the break to make the game much closer.

Half time score line: Cornwallis 0 – 2 Norton Knatchbull

The second half was very similar to the first half, with the visiting striker causing plenty of problems with his pace, getting behind the Cornwallis backline on plenty of occasions, and eventually scoring a quick brace. Cornwallis continued giving the ball away and could not clear their lines, resulting in two more goals for Norton Knatchbull. A very difficult first game for the year 8 boys, but they showed plenty of fighting spirit and character and can hold their heads up high.
