Shrewsbury House playing their first match of the term started quickly and had a number of opportunities saved by the excellent Kings House Goalkeeper, finally a fine move by Shrewsbury shooting from just outside the box gave SHS the lead going into halftime. The 2nd was much of the same until midway through when Kings House scored twice in quick succession the 2nd being a magnificent overhead kick from outside the area. Shrewsbury House rallied a 2nd and 3rd plus a superb finish into the top corner saw SHS go through 4-2 winners.
This first round match had special significance as it was also the first ‘proper’ school fixture at Arnold House for more than 6 months. And what a blockbuster it proved to be! Both teams played their part in this contest. At half time the scores were level at 2-2. Arnold House started the second period brightly and they soon were leading 4-2. Aldwickbury responded and began to claw their way back into the game with two well taken goals in quick succession. Aldwickbury, were now very much in the ascendancy but it was Arnold House who got the all important fifth and sixth goals to ensure their name was in the hat for round 2.
