Shapira Cup Win
Congratulations to our 1st team footballers who won the Shapira Cup on Wednesday 4th October, which was hosted this year by Wellesley House School in Broadstairs.
In the group phase, they won their first game against Northbourne Park 1-0, drew their second game with New Beacon 0-0 before losing to DPS Cranbrook 3-0. That meant they had to win their final group game 6-0 in order to reach the knockout phase of the tournament. A goal in the last minute sealed a 6-0 win over Junior Kings 2nd team and progressed to the semi-finals.
In the semi-final they met Junior Kings 1st team and in a highly competitive match won 2-0. The final was against Marlborough House, the first half was very even and Holmewood turned around 1-0 down. In a fantastic team performance in the second half Holmewood ran out winners 4-1.
