Brooksbank’s Girls’ and Boys’ Football Teams have seen action in three Cup Finals of the Calderdale and West Yorkshire Cups.
Our U16 Boys’ Football Team met Brighouse High on Tuesday 8th May in what was a great squad performance. We were defeated on this occasion by Brighouse, but those at pitch side said it was a fantastic, entertaining game. The Year 11 side from rivals at Brighouse High beat us 2-1 to lift the trophy for the fourth time in five years.
Well done to Brooksbank’s U12 Girls’ Football Team in their West Yorkshire Final also on Tuesday 8th May against RyburnValley. Once again, we didn’t get the result we wanted but we live to fight another day. On an afternoon of scorching sunshine, the scores were tied 1-1 at half time. However in the second half, Ryburn had the wind on their side and gradually took control. At the final whistle the score was 6-1 to Ryburn, and we congratulate them on a convincing win.
Brooksbank’s Boys’ Sixth Form Team met opponents from North Halifax Grammar School in the Calderdale Cup on Thursday, 10th May. In a very close game, Team Brooksbank were gutted to concede the only goal of the match in its closing stages. Heartfelt commiserations to the boys.
A big well done to all our teams for reaching the finals and delivering some fantastic football moments.
