The annual Rory Davies charity football match between Year 10 and Year 11 students, in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust, was held at the Walmer Road football ground on 2 May. Kick off was at 7pm, the match quickly becoming a game of attrition in favourable conditions. The Year 11 team were hampered by an energetic and tactical Year 10 team who played long-balls to a rapid striker. The Year 11 team stand-out player was Josh Riley who played outstanding defence. By half time, the score stood at 1-0 to Year 10. After an inspirational team talk by Hannah Knights (the first female player in the trophy’s history), who was playing in midfield, Year 11 scored two quick goals. However, a lack of communication between the Year 11 players saw their attack and midfield repeatedly overwhelmed. Cameron Hoath, Year 10 goalie, held the line against a sudden Year 11 attack, with other Year 11 attempts going wide or hitting the bar. By the final whistle, Year 11 had equalised to a 2-2 draw. On penalties Year 11 scored two, one from Jamie Besford and one from Hannah Knights, whilst Dean Short’s powerful attempt ultimately went wide. Year 10 succeeded in winning the match 4-2 on penalties. Max Davies, Rory’s brother, presented the trophy to Year 10 player Josh Caswell. A total of £470 was raised in donations on the night, meaning that since its inception, the match has raised close to £10,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust. Congratulations to everyone who took part and to Mr Bryan David (teaching assistant) for arranging the event.
