A Billy Young hatrick and John Rixon brace proved too much for Wheatley Park School as they went down 5-1 at home to Cherwell School in the Oxford derby. Wheatley Park’s reply came from Aaron Davies.
Gareth Owen was the hero of the day for Headlands School (Bridlington), as he netted four goals in a 4-1 home win against Eckington School (Sheffield).
