Martin Willbourn Cup

Wednesday 14 August 2019

A big tradition for our Academy, the Martin Willbourn Cup is given to the winner of a football match between staff members and Year 11s. Last year it was Year 11s who got the cup by beating the staff team 6–5. This year the score was different, however it was again the Year 11s who won the match to secure the cup.

Students started 1-0 up in the first 10 minutes. Despite the staff gaining the lead by 2-1 a little later in the match, the result was 11-4 in favour of Year 11s. Principal Mr Jones, also a former professional football player, said that it was the best student team he has seen at Ark Globe. Congratulations to Year 11s on their well-deserved Martin Willbourn cup!
