So Close for U18s in Cheshire Plate

After a thrilling semi-final victory against Lymm High School, which required a penalty shootout to decide the winner, The Grange 1st XI team played Kings Chester in the Cheshire Plate final at the end of March.

In what would be, for many, their last ever game representing the school, the players were determined to do themselves, and the school, proud. Unfortunately, a slow start saw The Grange put on the back foot. In a fairly even half in terms of possession, Kings were very clinical in front of goal and The Grange were unlucky to find themselves 3-0 down.

The players rallied in the second half and quickly reduced the deficit after a cool finish into the bottom corner by Mike Newsholme. As the minutes ticked by, The Grange pushed players forward in search of another goal but this allowed Kings to score a goal on the break and leave the final score 4-1.

“Thank you to all the players for their excellent commitment and attitude they have shown for the full duration of this season. I would like to wish all the leaving Upper Sixth players all the best in their future footballing endeavours,” said Mr Cusick, Head of Football.
