On Wednesday afternoon Cheltenham College Prep saw the return of football to the site. For the first time in nearly 25 years the goalposts were erected and children were persuaded to go in goal. Our good friends at Beaudesert were kind enough to send over U10A and B teams to open up our new facilities.
The A team game was a tight affair which finished with a 3-1 win to Cheltenham following some outstanding team play and a pressing defence. On the B team pitch the Cheltenham Whites scraped home to a 1-0 victory, whilst the Cheltenham Blues recorded a solid 2-0 victory.
Duncan Simpson, Head of Boys' Sport, commented, "All the boys, from both schools, played with great spirit and good play was applauded by both sets of parents. It was a marvellous way to re-instate football back onto the Cheltenham College Prep School's sporting programme. Well done to all."
