WPT Elite Football Academy v Rotherham United Development Squad

On Monday 8th April the WPT Elite Football Academy played their first competitive fixture against the Rotherham United Development squad.

Even though the team have only been together on 2 previous occasions they showed great heart, commitment and attitude throughout working together as a team and giving Rotherham a real competitive game.

Although the scoreline finished 5-1 to Rotherham it certainly wasn’t a true reflection on the performance which ended with a standing ovation from the parents and head teachers in attendance – the team are already planning their next fixture for after Easter so watch this space.

Man of the Match: Reece Ratcliffe

Goal Scorer: Callum Blencowe (penality)
