Staff claim bragging rights in annual Leavers' football match
23rd May 2017

Staff at Rydal Penrhos claimed bragging rights over Sixth Form pupils in the annual Leavers’ football match.

The clash, which took place at the home of Welsh Premier League outfit Llandudno, took place on Friday, May 19 and the staff turned in a virtuoso display to emerge with a resounding 6-1 victory.

A superb start to the contest saw the staff race into a comfortable advantage, with Head of Sixth Form Pete Lavery and a penalty from the Reverend Nick Sissons giving them a two-goal cushion early on.

Tennis coach Craig Stock took advantage of some hesitant defending to fire home a third soon after, and Sissons finished well after finding space to put the tie beyond doubt with half an hour gone.

Credit to the Upper Sixth group, they continued to battle hard and got their rewarded when Head Boy Adam Sabri finished confidently past keeper Darren Baker to give them a consolation.

That was as good as it got for the Leavers’, with Stock continuing his fine form in-front of goal with his second of the afternoon, and despite bodies tiring on the staff side they rounded off the scoring courtesy of a neat effort from Purchase Ledger Stephen O’Neill.

The coveted trophy was presented to Mr Baker and Mr Lavery following the contest, which the joint-winners of the inaugural Golden Boot award were Rev’d Sissons and Mr Stock.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “It was another fantastic occasion played in the right spirit and well done to all who took part.”

The Upper Sixth kits were sponsored by Exile Sports, which is owned by former pupil Marcus Copeland.
