Balby Carr Community Sports College have retained the English Schools FA Under-18s Trophy following a dramatic 4-2 extra-time win over the John Madejski Academy.
Last night’s hotly-contest final saw Balby having to dig deep to come from 2-1 down and lift the trophy for an incredible third time.
The match at Coventry City’s Ricoh Arena marked the fourth time in five years that Balby have reached the ESFA final.
The prolific Doncaster outfit cruised into the final following a 5-0 win over Thomas Telford School before dispatching the Reading-based John Madejski Academy yesterday.
