Year 8 boys’ football team battles on

Derby ace Zak Nazir fired in three fantastic goals as the 7 a-side team battled in two highly charged matches at Woodhey High School. As the temperature dropped the Derby raised their game and a 2-2 draw was their reward for a great performance against a strong Elton High School side.

In the second match, against local rivals Bury Church, The Derby keep pressing after falling behind early in the game. Going all out for a good result 7-1 was the final score but that did not really do justice to their efforts.

Working on tightening up the defence for future matches will be a priority but no one can deny the determination and enthusiasm shown in abundance.
