Hampton’s U13A players have made history by making it through to their respective English Schools’ Football Association (ESFA) Cup national final for the first time in the School’s history.

The Second Year pupils have enjoyed a strong season. After reaching the semi-finals of their Independent Schools Football Association (ISFA) competition, they went one better in the ESFA competition securing an impressive 3-1 away win against a strong Enfield Grammar School.

The U13 ESFA competition commenced with 630 teams at the start of the season and now culminates with Hampton facing Chesterfield High School, Crosby in what will be a much-anticipated cup final.

Director of Football, Mr David Burke warmly praised the young players:

“It has been a fantastic journey for the boys who have had to win nine games to get to the final. As a group they have worked hard all season in training, taking on board pertinent information and applying it well. Demonstrating exemplary team work and a conviction to play for the School they have certainly lived up to our Hampton values and are an excellent example of the adage: the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”
