After a gallant cup run, Ribblesdale High School’s Under 15 football team lost 9-0 to Coombe Boys’ School from New Malden in the final of the English Schools’ FA PlayStation Under 15 Open Schools’ Cup.

Staged at Reading FC’s Madejski Stadium, Ribblesdale High School found it tough to get going against Coombe Boys’ School, who are the educational partner of the Fulham FC Academy.

Coombe Boys’ raced into a four-goal lead before half-time, looking every inch a professional outfit.

Despite the flurry of goals, Ribblesdale never let their heads drop and kept plugging away throughout the contest.
