The Allen Cup 2015.
On Friday April 17th eleven teams entered this year’s Allen Cup competition which was held at Tower Road Academy. The Allen Cup had been presented to the school by Rose Allen, a former teaching assistant at the school who ran the girls’ football cup for many years before her retirement.
The teams were split into two leagues with Tower Road ‘A’ in league one and Tower Road ‘B’ and ‘C’ in league two. Tower Road ‘A’ came up against some stiff competition and drew three out of their four games. Tower Road ‘B’ finished third in their league, winning 2-0 against Butterwick ‘B’ with Grace M scoring both goals. Then they beat Sibsey 5-0 with two goals from Grace M and three goals from Emily B. Tower Road ‘C’ also played very well, as this was the first time many of the girls had represented the school, they also beat Sibsey, winning 2-0 with Evelyn scoring both goals. Well done to all!
The winner and runner-up from both leagues then went on to play in the finals. Boston West ‘A’ and Butterwick ‘A’ played for 1st and 2nd places and Charlton Road and Spalding Primary played in the 3rd 4th play-offs. After two very close matches Butterwick ‘A’ beat Boston West ‘A’ 1-0 and Charlton Road beat Spalding Primary.
Many thanks to the referees from Haven Six Form Academy and the other students that offered to help organise ie looking after the score board and organising the matches. Thank you all the school that took part and for making it a great afternoon and thank you to all the spectators who came and supported the teams.
