Osbaston’s footballers in tournament triumph

January 25th, 2018
Osbaston’s winning team with Monmouth School Boys’ Prep Headteacher, Mr Neil Shaw.

Persistent rain failed to dampen the spirits as Osbaston Church in Wales School clinched the top honour in The Grange Invitational Six-a-Side Football Tournament.

Osbaston A carried off the Cup after pipping Overmonnow Primary School A 1-0 in a well-contested final between the two most impressive teams.

It was the second time Osbaston had won the main trophy in the 21st edition of the popular event organised and hosted by Monmouth School Boys’ Prep.

Headteacher at Monmouth School Boys’ Prep, Mr Neil Shaw, presented the trophies and medals to the triumphant players and runners-up after more than three hours of competition.

Monmouth School Boys’ Prep fielded four sides, Overmonnow and Osbaston had two teams, while Cross Ash Primary School, Kymin View Primary School, and Pentrepoeth Primary School from Newport also took part in the annual tournament.

Pentrepoeth is the most successful school in the history of the tournament with nine Cup triumphs dating back to 1998.

Yesterday, Kymin View lifted the Shield after defeating Osbaston B in the final, while Overmonnow B won the Bowl from runners-up, Monmouth School Boys’ Prep B.

The Plate final was an all Monmouth School Boys’ Prep contest with the D team eventually coming out on top against the C team.

2018: Cup winners: Osbaston A, runners-up: Overmonnow A; Plate winners: Monmouth School Boys’ Prep D, runners-up: Monmouth School Boys’ Prep C; Bowl winners: Overmonnow B, runners-up: Monmouth School Boys’ Prep B; Shield winners: Kymin View, runners-up: Osbaston B.
