Quadruple county and double national football success at Whitgift School.
Whitgift’s young footballers have had an unprecedented winning streak, with recent county and national competition success. Whitgift dominated the County Cup scene this season with the U11, U12, U13 and U14 teams each bringing home the silverware in their respective Surrey age-group categories.
The U11 squad, having won the Investec ISFA U11 Seven-a-Side regional tournament, in September, went on to be crowned national champions in the final at St George’s Park, home of the England football team, earlier this month. They beat Lochinver House School 1-0 in the final, a great conclusion to the competition and their incredible season.
Not to be outdone by the U11s, the U13s also had a superb season. In addition to their County Cup win, they too became ISFA national champions, lifting the U13 Cup, beating City of London 4-0 in the final. This was an outstanding feat, as the Whitgift U13s have been ISFA Cup victors for five consecutive years.
Whitgift football coach, Mr Andrew Martin, commented, “The boys were outstanding all season in attitude and application to both training and matches. They have been a credit to the School.”
