Year 8 League Success at Pershore High School




Led by teacher, James Layton-Hill, the Year 8 boys successfully claimed the District League with a convincing 9-1 win against Blackminster School.



The boys have greatly impressed so far in their short careers as Pershore footballers, clinching the league after playing 4 games, scoring 17 goals and conceding an impressive 2. It has been a pleasure taking the boys for the fixtures, where not only have they excelled on the pitch in this short but busy campaign they have been a credit off it too. When they first make the transition into secondary school it can take time to iron out the teething issues when a squad is finally assembled with students from many different primary or middle schools. This year however has been a pleasurable exception as the boys have hit the ground running and it just shows what can be achieved when the common interest shared, a love of football, has resulted in Pershore High School convincing taking the title.
