The team had gone unbeaten all year and were in high hopes coming into this one. After a nervous first 20 minutes, Bingley finally got the breakthrough, with Archie D finishing confidently from a brilliant through ball by Harry L. Shortly after that, Archie doubled his and Bingley's tally to make it 2-0. After a lapse in concentration at the back, allowing Beckfoot Thornton to pull one back, we went into half time at 2-1. 

Due to an inspiring team talk, Bingley got off to a great start in the second half. Another excellent through ball by substitute Reuben W set Archie off to score his hat-trick and put Bingley 3-1 up. From then on Bingley controlled the game, Louis W and Harry L pulling the strings and all of the defence keeping Beckfoot Thornton at bay. Eventually Bingley managed to score another, arguably the best of the game with Harry playing a 1-2 with Archie and finishing with expert precision. Shortly after, a great run by Nathan R down the wing and a scramble in the box, allowed Nathan to finish off his own hard work and cross to make the score 5-1.

An excellent performance on the day and throughout the season from the whole team! We are already looking forward to next year and hopefully taking this amazing form into Year 11.
