Cirencester Kingshill School year eights came back from 3-0 down to win the District cup final.

Kingshill gave themselves a mountain to climb after just 20 minutes against Rednock at the Corinium Stadium on Monday, April 1.

They managed to claw two goals back before half time and the game was nicely poised.

Kingshill equalised just seven minutes into the second half.

They took the lead for the first time with five minutes to go before scoring a penalty to put the icing on the cake and win their first district title.

Elsewhere, the year nines followed up their national quarter-final win by retaining their district title with victory over Marling School.

Kingshill fell behind early on but drew level at the end of the first half and they ran riot in the second half with Sami Kern scoring a penalty before Ben Huxtable scored a brace and Sam Wiles also got on the scoresheet to give them a 4-1 win.

Coach Luke Ryder said: “Well done on a phenomenal season. You have made school history by making the semi-final of the National Cup and can be proud of having the title of District Champions for Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9."
