On 4th and 5th May, many familiar former pupils returned to the College in order to participate in two thrilling football matches versus the current Year 12 pupils.

The first match, which took place on a sunny Tuesday evening, involved alumni Lerpoolians, Anthony Lyons, Matt Jackson, Michael Lawless, Danny Smith, Nathan Pickering, Dylan Luck, Adam Stringer, amongst others produced a see-saw match, which ended with Anthony Lyons firing home a last-minute penalty to give the alumni Lerpoolians a 4-3 win.

The following evening saw the return of Steven Rawlings, Luc Haralambous and, taking time off from his scholarship at Blackpool FC, Jak Wood. This match also provided many goals, but, turning the tables, it was the current Y12s who ended up the victors, 6-5.

It was a fantastic double event of sport with many asking for similar matches to be played on a regular basis in future.
