A SCHOOL football team has rounded off a high-scoring season by winning the district cup.

The Year 11 team at Norton College has won the Ryedale Challenge shield, which dates back to 1897, for the fourth year out of a possible five. They were also runners-up in the North Yorkshire County cup, the best result the school has achieved in the tournament.

Other school teams beaten include Malton, Lady Lumley’s, Ryedale, Pindar, Whitby, King James along with GrahamSchool, in Scarborough, which they beat 4-1 in the district cup final.

Coach Luke Davies said: “The boys have had an outstanding season, producing some free flowing attractive football along the way.

“The team have worked fantastically well as both an attacking and defensive unit, while there have also been some excellent individual performances along the way.

“We have swept aside most teams all season scoring regularly more than four goals a game and conceding fewer goals than ever before.

“A cup double was only halted by a real tough fought encounter in the county cup final against Barlby who won 1-0 in the end but the boys should be proud.”
