Sonning school win county cup
Published 20/05/13



BEN CAMPBELL netted all four goals as Sonning’s Reading Blue Coat School ran out winners of the Berkshire U18 Walsh Cup after beating St Bernard’s, Slough, in the final at Newbury.

The team won all 13 of their matches this season, as well as winning both the RJ Gibbs Cup and the Daniels Cup.

Campbell put the Sonning school ahead when he ran on to a through ball and lobbed the keeper from the edge of the box.

Shortly afterwards Blue Coat added a second, again through Campbell who converted a cross at the far post. St Bernard’s started to put a lot more midfield possession together but seemed to have little cutting edge as the back four of Jonti Pajwani, Dan Hanton, Chris May and Elliott Cameron held them off until, against the run of play, they hit back twice in quick succession. Firstly, a corner fizzed across the six-yard box and was slotted home. Within two minutes, St Bernard’s were awarded a free kick on the edge of the box and the strike hit one of their players, wrong-footing goalkeeper Rob Tarry in goal to level the scores. Blue Coat hit back and forced St Bernard’s back and harried them into mistakes, which resulted in another Campbell goal.

The second half began slowly but as it progressed St Bernard’s appeared to have the upper hand and Blue Coat looked like they needed another goal.


Fortunately for the Sonning team, the opposition hit the bar and with some good luck and great work from Tarry, Blue Coat held firm.

In the second half Campbell netted again to put his side 4-2 up. St Bernard’s piled on the pressure and with eight minutes left gave themselves a lifeline with a third goal.
