Football: Old Bede's Secure Late Win


Bede's Football department hosted a friendly Football match with our 1st XI playing an Old Bedes XI on Saturday 3rd January. 

The 1sts took an early lead through a well taken goal by Jacob Merrick and then doubled their lead in the second half after a fine lob by James Allen embarrassed the ex-Bede's pupil and current groundskeeper Paul Turner.


As the Bede's 1st XI tired however the Old Bedians showed their experience and pulled two quick goals back to set up a nerve-wracking finish.

In the dying moments Dan Gorringe scored a dramatic winner for the Old Bede's side, with Head of Football Dave Caryer adding, "It was to great to see some old faces out on the pitch today, many of whom showed they can still really play - even if some of them are not in the best physical condition!"


Mr Caryer and the 1st XI had a brilliant time and hope that such fixtures will be repeated every year from now on.
