HAMMOND CUP WINNERS 2018

Deal Parochial 1   Sandwich Primary 0

Deal Parochial won their first trophy in football after a very hard fought game against Sandwich Primary.

Prior to the match Mr Knight, Mrs Hodgson, Mrs Cureton and I, travelled down to Sussex to collect those in year 6 from their week-long stay at PGL; they were absolutely tired after a fun packed week but were in high spirits for the cup final. After one car breaking down, numerous calls to coaches, referees to delay kick-off, calls to people to rescue those who have broken down; we made it to Warden House for the Hammond Cup Final with kick-off now at 4.15pm.

On a warm afternoon, Deal Parochial took kick-off against Sandwich Primary in the Final of the Hammond Cup. Despite half the team being rather tired, they started the game quick, playing at a high intensity. The team showed great sportsmanship throughout the game with Amazing team work but had to work extremely hard against a very strong Sandwich opposition.

A single goal from Kai Adzic after fantastic link up play settled the difference from two fantastic teams playing amazing football. In the second half, Sandwich tried in vain to equalise but our team defended and kept possession extremely well to hold on for their first ever cup win.

Man of the match goes to the whole team for great attitude.
