Greenway's A team scooped the Year 5 Football Cup last night on the astroturf at Tanbridge House School. They emerged from a group that included Southwater A but didn't have it easy, St Mary's Horsham notably holding them to a goalless draw in their third match. That earned them the right to take on St Peter's Henfield A comprehensive winners of Group 3 in a semi that looked a formality as they went 3-0 up but looked anything but as the Henfielders embarked on a brave comeback that just fell short at 3-2.

Meanwhile in the other half of the draw Castlewood had squeezed past Leechpool A in their group on goal difference and Southwater B had nudged past Shelley at the last in their reduced group of three teams. In the semi between the two Castlewood maintained their successful record of brinksmanship by coming through the footgolf challenge decider.

So a Greenway A v Castlewood final and a good one it was too. Nip and tuck and decided by a single Greenway A strike that at the final whistle sent the Greens into raptures of delight as champions.
