All conquering! The marvels of Mangotsfield

Published on: 30 May 2017


MEET one of the most successful football teams in the history of Mangotsfield School.

These lads have been together since they started at the school in Year 7 four years ago and have won all the local competitions for their year group every time.

Last month, they became the champions of Bristol for the fourth year running, beating Bedminster Down 9 - 2 in the Year 10 final. The goals came from Max Williams (4), Ryley Towler (2), Bailey Sloper, Oli Hulbert and Joe Beardwell (1).

Also for the fourth time in a year, the boys became champions of Gloucestershire in  a contest involving more than 80 schools.They beat Archway School 8 - 0. Joe Beardwell and Max Williams each scored three with the other goals coming from Bailey Sloper and Ryley Towler.

After the Voice went to print, the team were due to play at Ashton Gate in the final of the Woodcock Shield, after again beating Bedminster Down 2-0 in a tight semi-final.

Head of PE Tristan Hawkins said everyone at the school was incredibly proud of the team.

"We realised early on that they were a special group - and they just keep getting better and better. They are unbeaten in all of Bristol and Gloucestershire and they are role models for younger students," he said. 

Two of the boys are already on the books of Bristol Rovers and one's at Bristol City.
