Potters Bar celebrate opening the scoring in the Bill Sanders memorial cup final against St Albans


Potters Bar Primary School’s District U11s took their season’s trophy haul to four after picking up a further two pieces of silverware last weekend.

On Saturday, Eddie Johnston’s hat-trick helped Bar beat rivals St Albans 3-0 to claim the Bill Sanders Memorial Hertfordshire District Cup.

Not content with just the three titles this season, the youngsters travelled to Gloucester to face a previously unbeaten Bristol side in the ESFA 9-a-side Shires Cup Final.

Bristol contained 9 academy players at Bristol City FC and Bristol Rovers FC respectively so the standard of the match was very high.

A huge crowd saw a highly entertaining game that went from end to end.

However, with both keepers in top form, the game ended 0-0 after full-time.

The game moved into extra-time and despite Potters Bar hitting the crossbar both teams couldn’t be separated and with no penalties to separate the two sides, the trophy was shared.

The team now move onto another final next Saturday morning against Bexley in the ESFA 9-a-side Geoff Richards Memorial Knockout Cup.

Following this, they travel to Stevenage FC in the afternoon for the Lamex Cup where they hope to make it trophies number five and six in this record-breaking season for the side.
