Football 2015/16 Season

Our boys have performed very well this year in both the Swansea Schools League and the Welsh Cup competitions. We have now completed all League fixtures and are very proud to say that we have won 26 of our 30 league fixtures. Averaging less than 1 loss per year group for the season. These results see all of our teams qualify for the semi-final stages of the Swansea Schools competition and the boys are relishing the opportunity of facing teams from the West of Swansea. We are confident after our league performances that if we turn up with the right attitude then we have the ability to reach five Swansea Schools Cup Finals this year.

There has also been some success in the Welsh Cup with both Year 7 and 9 reaching the quarter-final stages where they narrowly lost out to Bishop of Llandaf and Chepstow respectively. Both teams were beaten by break away goals that went totally against the run-of-play and our boys will certainly use those losses as motivation for this seasons remaining fixtures and next years Welsh Cup.

As we look to put Bishop Vaughan Football more firmly on the map in National competitions, it has also been very positive to see us field a Sixth Form team this year. Although a little late for this season, we very much look forward to seeing these boys entering the Welsh Cup next year and playing on a far more regular basis. We hope to continue the success gained whilst in Key Stage 3 and 4.
