Students help team win finals
Sporting students from Pool Academy have helped their football team win the finals and secure the cup.
Aaron, Harrison, Dylan, Oliver, Bailey and Ryan are members of the Illogan Warriors football club. They recently took part in the Kernow Youth Football League’s finals against Truro.
The Year 7 boys, who practise with their team at least once a week, said the match was a good one with a finishing score of 4-1.
The boys were presented with a cup and each given two medals, one for being a league winner and one for being a cup winner.
They hope this win means they can now move up a league.
Oliver said: “We were a bit shaky at the start but once we got going we were ok.”
After June the boys hope to start playing in the next league with their team.
Oliver said: “We like football, it is good. We play to improve and we don’t worry about winning or losing. It is just about enjoying the game.”
As well as playing with the Illogan Warriors two of the boys also train with Plymouth Argyle at Pool Academy. Ryan will be trying out for a chance to train with Chelsea in Truro.
The boys hope to continue playing football when they are older.
