Tonight, the boys football team played in the final of the City Catholic Knockout cup at Newcastle academy against art Charles Gosforth. A cagey start by both teams but we soon started to dominated the game and scored a great team goal to put us 1-0. That's how it stayed until half time. The second half started the same with us the stronger of the two teams and got a second to go 2-0 up. A soft penalty to St Charles gave them a lifeline 2-1 but St Michael's rallied and got two quick fire goals to go 4-1 up and see it out to lift the trophy for the first time ever. A fitting end to the season for this outstanding team who have produced some excellent football and teamwork throughout the season and have been a joy to coach. St Michael's best ever footballing season to date. What an achievement a league and cup double and two runners up in the Bishops cup and the Kings cup.
Well done to St Charles on reaching the final.
Boys you have done St Michael's proud boys!! Mr Gorman and Mrs Hillard.
