Eggar’s Makes Sporting History
On Tuesday 05 May Eggar’s played in the Year 10 Aldershot & Farnborough District Schools' Football Association Cup Final.
In order to reach the final Eggar’s had already overcome Farnham Heath End, Connaught and Collingwood schools. There was plenty of support for Eggar’s who were facing Weydon School, the current cup holders and recently crowned league champions.
Eggar’s were on top for the first 20 minutes, creating a couple of half chances against a strong and organised Weydon defence. Weydon then got a foothold in the game and, through a great strike, took the lead. With one minute to play before half time, Harry Cann broke down the left to cross and, at the second attempt, James Smith converted to make it 1-1 at half time. In the second half Eggar’s came out in positive manner and from a corner Matt Barber, the team’s captain, was able to smash the ball into the back of the net from close range.
With twenty minutes left to play Weydon had to go for it but we held firm and, when the final whistle blew, Eggar’s were the district champions!
The trophy, first awarded in 1912 to East End School, is steeped in history and, with the exception of the two world wars, has seen many winners in its 103 years. Eggar’s is both delighted and proud of the team’s achievement.
