The head of football at The Windsor Boys' School is hoping his students can create a footballing legacy after they won seven trophies in a silverware-packed season.
Footballers from the school in Maidenhead Road won trophies across all four age groups in one of its most successful seasons to date.
The year nine team secured a historic treble, winning the Slough Schools FA District Cup, the Slough Schools FA league and the Berkshire County Cup.
And with cup doubles secured by the school’s year 10 and 11 teams, head of football Alex Littlejohn said he was delighted that football's increased popularity at the school was transferring to success on the pitch.
“It’s been well known as a rugby school but in the last four or five years football has slowly taken over because of the success. I went to the school and I’ve seen it when it was in the shadows of rugby. Hopefully our success can create a legacy as one of the best schools in the county,” said Alex.
He attributed their success to a combination of good attitudes at school and sporting ability. This positive attitude was especially evident in the school’s recent District Cup Finals, when Alex’s year 10s had trailed 2-0 to Burnham Park Academy but later won 3-2.
But Alex reserved special praise for his year nine team, who swept all before them in their first year together, with striker Jack Hall notching 33 goals.
“It’s one of the best year groups I’ve seen for a while. It got to the point where every morning I was coming in with a new trophy. I want to try and keep this as a milestone.
“It makes you feel proud,” he said.
