It was fantastic to see football being played again in a school setting and it was the first opportunity that both schools have had to play football this term. It was a well fought match with plenty of goals being scored, especially from set pieces. Claremont Fan Court took an early lead in the game and then doubled their tally after only 15 minutes. Ryde School were relentless in their pressure throughout the game and always looks dangerous on the counter-attack which kept them in the game right up to the final whistle. The game was played in great spirit and thank to Ryde for making the long trip to play the match!
Brooke House hosted Thorpe House in this first round fixture. The game started brightly with Brooke House taking an early lead but Thorpe House responded quickly to level the game. Brooke House scored a couple of quick goals shortly after and continued to build on their lead with some nice football being played. Thorpe House continued to battle throughout the game and scored a second for a deserved consolation goal
