Before Coronavirus lockdown took hold, Winstanley College’s ‘first’ football team had a magnificent unbeaten season, which saw them crowned league winners.
Winstanley won 11 consecutive league games without dropping a single point. They also scored 48 goals and only conceded six goals in an invincible season.
The team had also reached the semi final of the Association of Colleges Sport National Cup and the quarter final of the County Cup before coronavirus stopped the season.
Ben Rutherford, sports officer at Winstanley College said: “The team, led by centre back and captain Jack Davies have had an outstanding season showing quality, class, determination and spirit each and every week.
“They are truly a pleasure to work with and, in the words of their coach Stephen Brockley, they are ‘the best college team I have coached in my years working at Winstanley’.
“High praise indeed. Well done lads, we are all extremely proud of your achievements this year!”
