Congratulations to our Post 16 team who won the Mansfield Town Cup and Nottinghamshire County Cup 2022/2023 at Burton Joyce after a hard fought penalty shootout victory against Rushcliffe Spencer Academy.
As a result, the Tuxford Academy Post 16 team are now officially the best team/school in the county!
It was a tense and dramatic game. After being 1-0 down at half time, Rushcliffe scored immediately after half time to make it 2-0.
However after an fantastic goal from Kian for Tuxford, the game turned around. It was 2-1, before Callum equalised to make it 2-2.
After full time, the teams were still level, so the game moved on to penalties. In sudden death, both teams were tied 4-4 after five penalties each, but Tuxford goalie Ben made a stunning save, which won Tuxford the trophy!
Huge congratulations to you all! You showed showed resilience, determination, passion and commitment. We are incredibly proud of you all!
