Hugh Sexey Middle School

A TEAM of year six boys took on 12 other schools in the Danone English Schools’ Football Association county final.

The youngsters from Hugh Sexey Middle School had previously won their area tournament and at the finals they got through to the qualifying rounds, finishing top in their group.

They then moved onto the final, and despite the scores staying level after extra time, the group was awarded the silver medal after a penalty kick was saved by the opponents’ keeper.
