Match Report

On: Saturday, 14 Jan 2023
Venue: at Home

After the game against Bristol Grammar school was cancelled due to poor weather, the 2023 1st XI football season kicked off (no pun intended) with an impressive 4-2 victory at home to a strong Monmouth side with Will N named as Man of The Match. Sherborne started the game strongly and within a few minutes of kick-off, Freddie S put the blues 1 goal up. Both teams then had chances to score but it was Monmouth who made it 1-1 midway through the second half. It only took Sherborne a few minutes to respond with another goal created down the left wing by Will N and finished by Seb S. The match restarted with Sherborne 2-1 up however Monmouth managed to make it 2-2 with a strike from distance. Joey L was hugely impactful in the second half with a brace of fantastic goals which put the game to bed and sealed a great start to the season. The 1st XI will look for their second win of the season on Thursday at home to Dauntsey’s.
