Thorpe Hesley light up New York Stadium

On a wet Saturday afternoon at the end of September, Thorpe Hesley footballers graced the turf at half time of Rotherham United Vs Northampton Town. After a penalty shootout disappointment in the first round last year, this year’s team (including some players from last year) were determined to be successful this time around.


This year we faced Dalton Foljambe, a primary school we knew very little about. We were very slow out of the blocks and were 1-0 after only a few moments from their first shot at goal. Fortunately our heads did not go down, and we started to get the ball on the ground before becoming dominant in the game. Goals from three of our attacking players meant that we won the game 3-1, quite comfortably in the end, and progress to the next round later in the year. Well done boys!
