FOOTBALL: U16s romp home to 4-0 victory at the Ricoh

The Under 16s team have taken the first step in what could see the school make history last night, winning 4-0 against Stratford High in The Coventry Telegraph Cup; something that hasn’t been achieved by the school since 1993!

The game was a tense affair in the first half with Caludon taking a slender lead into half time with Felix Donkor scoring a fantastic goal which went in off the crossbar.

The Caludon boys came out in the second half and looked to take control of the game. Stratford didn’t cause too many problems for the Cally Keepers, but Josh Green made a fantastic tackle in the box to keep it at 1-0.

The game then took a turn, as Caludon started to dominate. Ryan Pedley was fouled in the box and skipper Harvey Billing dispatched the penalty with ease under great pressure.

Lennon McGuinness added a third and Felix Donkor finished off the game in style with a well taken finish after a fantastic move.

The boys celebrated after a well-deserved win and a beaming Mr Frankish could not have been prouder: “These lads are incredible, that’s was the big one for us and their heart and determination against a much fancied side showed what we’re about.

Celebrations at full-time

“We’ve got match winners as well, all the lads turned up and did the business. It’s a day they’ll never forget and I’m so proud of what we’ve achieved here today.

“We’ve now got to focus on our next two finals and finish off the season and these boy’s last few weeks at Caludon in style.”

The Year 11 team have the West Midlands Cup Final and Coventry Cup Final after the half term and could win the treble. Something which has never be done. 

Good luck lads!
