Torbay Schools Under 15 District Team
Last Wednesday 29th November 2017, Torbay Schools Under 15s played against Plymouth Schools in Plymstock under flood lights in the National Cup. This is a representative team made up from all the best players in Year 10 from Torbay and South Devon schools. Torbay deserved their 1 – 0 lead at half time thanks to an excellent team move and clinical finish. The work rate and effort of the players were keeping a very strong Plymouth side under pressure and some outstanding individual performances were catching the eye of several scouts watching from the side.
Unfortunately, Plymouth proved too strong overall and came out on top, winning 4 – 2, progressing to the next round. The two Torbay Schools’ goals came via the two players representing Paignton Community and Sports Academy; Dejay Bolton, who coolly finished a fantastic through ball, and Hugo Griffiths, who scored a spectacular long range free kick, curling it beyond the keeper into the top corner. Both Dejay and Hugo represented the Academy with pride and played incredibly well in a very talented team.
