- Cambridge Schools’ FA draw 2-2 with Liverpool Schools’ FA in first leg of ESFA Under 15 PlayStation® Inter Association Trophy Final
- Deciding leg at Everton FC’s Goodison Park on Friday 16th May
Both Cambridge Schools’ FA and Liverpool Schools’ FA still have cup glory in their sights after a 2-2 draw in the first leg of the ESFA Under 15 PlayStation® Inter Association Trophy Final.
Contested in front of a four-figure crowd at Cambridge United’s The R Costings Abbey Stadium, Cambridge Schools’ FA took a two-goal lead with a brace from Callum Fullwood putting the hosts firmly on the front foot.
However Liverpool Schools’ FA, which has won the trophy an impressive 17 times, produced a quickfire second half comeback with a goal from Kevin Cringle and a stunning last-minute strike from Liam Morris leaving the tie finely poised ahead of the second leg of the final.
This takes place at Everton’s Goodison Park on Friday 16th May with the team having the chance of a lifetime to play on a Premier League pitch and get their hands on the coveted trophy.
The ESFA Under 15 Inter Association Trophy is the oldest schools’ competition in the world having been contested since 1907, with Cambridge’s only success coming in 1988 when they were crowned joint winners with West London Schools’ FA.
