Ursuline Scholars look forward to last 16 tie


The Ursuline Soccer Elite FA Scholars travel to Harefield Academy on Thursday looking to secure a place in the quarter finals of the National Schools Trophy.



The Scholars have won five games to reach this stage scoring 22 goals in the process.


In the last round they overcame a tricky away tie at Bede’s School in Hailsham thanks to goals from Mark Robinson and Mitchell Laing.


Ursuline Scholars Head coach Simon Beard said: “It’s a big week for the boys at Ursuline College and the place is buzzing leading up to the game on Thursday.


“The boys are all applying themselves really well in training because they all want to be involved in what is a historic fixture for Ursuline – the school have never been this far before in this competition.


“It’s been a great year so far and I’m pleased with the professionalism from every player. They are all focused and fully committed to the cause. They are still in the hunt for three trophies which is great for the boys – but for me it’s all about their development and that is there for everyone to see with their performances.”
