William Shrewsbury football team almost reach Wembley!

Football regional finals

The William Shrewsbury football team went to Coventry to play against teams representing Football League one teams from the South of the UK.  After finishing runners up in their group of five teams, they met Southend United in the Semi final.  In a topsy turvy game, we went behind, took the lead and were pegged back before getting a last minute winner to take the team to within 12 minutes of qualifying to play at Wembley!  The team took an early lead in the semi final with a thunderbolt shot from our right sided defender.  The lead lasted until 20 seconds before the end of the game when our hearts were broken by an equaliser!  The resulting penalty shoot out ended 3-2 to Peterborough United.  The team showed true WS spirit, cheering for the opposition when they received their winners medals.  We could not be any more proud of players.  Well done boys!
