Arthur Terry’s Year 11 footballers have swept aside all before them to win all four tournaments they competed in during 2023/24.

The talented team at the Four Oaks school have enjoyed incredible success in winning every match they have played during the entire academic year.

The trophy haul began with a showpiece event at Sutton Coldfield Town FC, where the team convincingly defeated local rivals Plantsbrook in a match organised by Pro Direct Academy Birmingham.

Plantsbrook were defeated again in the District Cup final a couple of months later when another superb performance secured a 3-0 victory at Hollyfields in Erdington. Arthur Terry had reached the final thanks to 6-1 and 4-2 wins over Saltley and John Willmott respectively.

Following the previous year’s Birmingham Schools’ Cup win at Villa Park, the target was to defend the trophy and retain their status as the top team in their age group in the city.

Arthur Terry’s campaign began with victories over Lordswood (10-0), Turves Green (1-0) and Tudor Grange (2-1) to set up a semi-final against the notoriously strong Bishop Challoner, who were seen off 2-1 thanks to a very gritty performance.

Arthur Terry produced their best performance of the season in this year’s final at Aston Villa’s Bodymoor Heath training ground as they recovered from a 2-0 deficit to power to a 6-2 triumph.

The victory booked a place in the District Super Cup Final in which a clean sweep of trophies was completed thanks to some brilliant finishing in a 6-0 win against King Edward VI Aston School.

Arthur Terry PE teachers Mr Holliday and Mr Byrne said: “The squad have competed incredibly well and shown excellent resilience, professionalism and respect to their opponents.

“Some of the football has been superb and staff from opposition schools have been incredibly complimentary at the quality of football on show.

“We hope the students look back fondly on their time together as a squad and we congratulate them in all they’ve achieved in sport during their time here.”
