Cordeaux Academy’s Year 7 footballers enjoyed a winning debut on the coast earlier this month.

The Year 7 boys travelled to Skegness Grammar School for their first match and all put in 100 per cent, displaying good team spirit and a strong work ethic to earn a 2-0 victory.

Finley Koscow put the Louth school in front shortly before half-time before skipper Tom Scott found the net in the second half.

Scott, who was named man-of-the-match, hit a clean strike from the edge of the box which arrowed into the bottom corner of the net to cap a well-deserved win.

Coach Matthew Mansey said: “They represented the Academy well with their positive attitude and excellent behaviour, and their performances proved their endeavours in training are paying off.

“Well done to all who participated and let’s hope the Year 7s keep up their eagerness in training for fixtures in the future.”

Cordeaux squad: Tom Scott (captain), Callum West (vice-captain), Connor Standland, Logan Houghton, Harvey Goldby, Oliver Laking, Pako Shilling, Alfie Nelson, Kyle McLoughlin, Isaac Howkins, Harry Lancaster, Matthew Green, Thomas Howell, John Barnes, Casey Stewart, Tom Wilson, Finley Koslow, Keaton Lunn, Callum Sylvester.
