NATIONAL CHAMPIONS 21/22 

 

Wednesday 27th April 2022 will go down in Yeltz Academy history. As this was the day we were crowned ECFA National Champions for the 21/22 season. 

Priestly College 1 - 2 Halesowen Town FC (Max Morris, Elliot Ball)

MOM - Ryan Snape

Out of the 260 teams that entered the competition we finally met Priestly College in the final at Doncaster Rovers. Having survived a couple of half chances to Priestly early on we got a foothold in the game and took advantage during two set pieces, of which the lads have been working hard on during the weeks leading up the final. The second half was a slight back to the walls job as Priestly came out very determined to get back into the game and had it not been for a couple of excellent point blank saves from our captain and GK Joel Chadwick we could have easily seen ourselves level. That being said we looked strong on the break and had 4/5 chances ourselves to pull clear with Joe Palmer being denied twice by Priestlys CB and GK respectively, and Ryan Snape flashing a ball across the box to which no-one could quite get on the end of. 

On reflection of the day, Head Coaches Craig Nicholls said, 'This is what hard work, togetherness and determination gets you. The lads have had a tough time due to Covid but this season they have progressed so much.. They are such a tight group and it shows on and off the pitch.. They have made myself and Josh very proud to be their managers. Now we have a league to win!'
