Holyrood School from Chard is celebrating becoming the first ever winner of the Vector Learning Trust Football Cup after success in the competition, held on the 3G surface at the Axe Valley Academy.
Boys and girls’ teams from years seven, eight and nine played their counterparts twice, where they had the opportunity to earn overall points for their academy (three points were awarded for a win, two for a draw and one for a defeat).
There was some excellent football played throughout the competition and both staff and students had great fun.
After some close games, Holyrood won seven and drew four of their 12 matches. Special mention must go to the year seven boys, who won their matches 2-0 and 2-1, and also to the year nine girls, who won their games 2-0 and 3-0.
Axe Valley Academy finished on 18 points whilst Holyrood were named Vector Cup Champions after obtaining 30 points.
Miss Sims, sports coach at Holyrood Academy, said: “What a great opportunity for the trust to showcase some of their sporting talent. It was good for the students to test themselves against each other; the games were played in a great spirit and it was brilliant to see so many students playing football at once. We plan on having more events like this throughout the year in a range of different sports. The students love the team morale that it creates and it will be interesting to see who takes the Vector Cup in the next competition.”
