Ted Wragg 1st Team Football Cup Final: ISCA vs. Westexe

The inaugural Ted Wragg 1st Team Football Cup Final was held at Exeter City FC’s Cliff Hill Training Ground on Wednesday 19th June. This knockout competition allows schools to field their top players, aiming to inspire young athletes to strive for excellence and represent their school’s 1st team.

From the outset, ISCA implemented a solid game plan, securing an early lead. Despite West Exe's determined defence, they found themselves trailing 3-0 by mid-first half. A tactical adjustment from West Exe sparked a comeback, narrowing the score to 3-2 as the second half began.

Both teams showcased impressive possession-based football, creating numerous chances. However, it was ISCA that found the net next, sealing their victory with a final score of 4-2. Both teams represented their schools admirably, and for the Year 11 players, it was a memorable farewell as they prepare for their future endeavours.

A special thanks to Exeter City FC and their Academy for providing the fantastic venue. The Ted Wragg Trust is grateful for their collaboration, offering elite coaching to our most talented footballers through the Ted Wragg Football Academy.
