The King’s School Worcester defeated RGS Worcester (sponsored by SME Solicitors) for only the fourth time in the last two decades to take the Worcester City Cup at Evesham United F.C. last week. RGS’s young team, with only two Upper Sixth students in the starting eleven began brightly with Alfie Cook and Max Hawksworth both getting behind the King’s back four and troubling the goalkeeper.
Unfortunately RGS were unable to convert territorial advantage into goals and King’s took a hold of the game. After half an hour King’s scored what was to be the decisive goal from a wind-assisted free kick after some slack RGS defending. After half time King’s continued to dominate possession until a tactical switch introduced Robbie Watts into an unfamiliar central attacking role. Chances came and went with RGS looking especially dangerous from set pieces, captain Ed Welch, John-Jo Parkinson-Allsopp and George Cook all going close. King’s however held out for the narrowest of victories.
