ST MARY'S High School proudly retained the Wydenbach Cup awarded to the most successful football school in the county.

Following competitive leagues involving all schools across the county, St Mary’s qualified for the Y7, Y9 and Y11 school football finals at Edgar Street.

The Y7 final was an exciting game against Whitecross which ended 1-1 after full time.

After an incredible 17 penalties from each team, Whitecross finished the winners.

St Mary’s played John Masefield in the Y9 final where a first half hat-trick gave St Mary’s the advantage at half time.

John Masefield battled well in the second half, but St Mary’s controlled the end of the match to win 3-2.

The Y11 final is the pinnacle of school football as it is their final year at high school.

St Mary’s faced John Kyrle in a physical and well matched game.

St Mary’s scored first with a speculative shot before a 25-yard top corner strike sealed the match ending 2-0.

"Thank you to all the organisers at Herefordshire Schools FA and Hereford FC for a great season and showcase finals," said a school spokesman.
