The Year Eight footballers from Nobel School in Stevenage have become county champions once more.

The boys built on their success of last year of becoming district and county champions by winning this season's English Schools' FA county cup recently.

They are now through to the South East regional finals of the prestigious competition.

Nobel beat Queens School 5-1 in the Minute Maid under-13 county final in a match played in rain and strong winds.

After ten minutes, striker Ronnie Robertson stormed through the defence to score the first goal with ease.

He then sneaked in with a header about five minutes later to score a second.

Immediately after the restart, Nobel scored an excellent goal from a free-kick by Reece Louden, putting the ball in the top corner from long range.

Two further goals scored again by Louden and fellow defender Greg Butler put the game to bed.
