Mount Pleasant representing Shrewsbury Town Football Club in Northern Regional Final

So Close To Wembley!

The Boys' U11 School Football Team (with a bit of help from Ella!) represented Shrewsbury Town Football Club at the Northern Regional Final of the English Football League Kids Cup, recently in Bradford. They were an absolute credit to the football club and of course, our school. We played in five fixtures - the results were as follows:

Shrewsbury Town 2 V 4 Sheffield United

Shrewsbury Town 3 V 0 Bury

Shrewsbury Town 3 V 2 Rochdale

Shrewsbury Town 0 V 1 Bolton Wanderers

Shrewsbury Town 1 V 0 Port Vale

We finished third in a group of 6 missing out by just one point to Bolton. So close to a semi-final berth and a potential final to play in the National Final at Wembley Stadium in May, ahead of the EFL League 1 Play Off Final.

This is an amazing achievement to have got so close and, as they say in footballing circles, there's always next season!
