The year 7A team started their campaign with a successful 5-0 win in the Croydon Cup 1st round /B League double header against Archbishop Tennisons. Sadly, they were knocked out of the National Cup in the 1st round after narrow 1-0 defeat to Greenshaw.
The year 7B team have played two league games but have lost both.
The year 8A team were successful in the 1st round of their Croydon Cup defence with a tight 4-3 win against Shirley High with the result also used for the corresponding A league fixture. They were also 4-2 winners against Riddlesdown in the A league, meaning the boys have 6 points from 6 in the league campaign and now also await their 2nd round opponents in the Croydon Cup.
After a successful season last year, the boys were also entered into the national cup, however a weakened Quest side were narrowly defeated 2-1 by the Central Foundation school from Islington back in October. This was the boys first ever defeat and still leaves them unbeaten in the League and Croydon Cup since they started secondary school!
The year 8 B team played their first game recently in what was an epic match resulting in an 8-4 defeat to Riddlesdown B. The boys have one more game before the XMAS break where they are due to play Harris CP at home which will be their 2nd league game of the season.
The year 9s have had a difficult start to the season. They were knocked out of the Croydon Cup in the 1st round for the second year running after a 4-1 defeat to Riddlesdown. This game was a double header so also counted as a 1st defeat of the season in the league as well! This was followed by another defeat last week to Orchard Park which means the Quest year 9 boys have a lot of work to do if they are to challenge for the 9A League this season.
The year 10s were entered into the National Cup this year after an impressive campaign last time out. Sadly, the boys lost a monumental penalty shoot-out 14-13 to St John’s in the 1st round after a 0-0 draw AET. However, the boys bounced back with a great mentality winning their next two games which were against Shirley High (B League game / Croydon cup double header 4-0 win) and St Joseph’s B 2-1 (B league fixture). The boys now find themselves with 2 wins from 2 in the 10B league and into the 2nd round of the Croydon cup.
The year 11s have played one game this season in the 1st round of the Croydon cup. The boys won this 4-2 after an impressive win over Archbishop Tenison’s.
The U15 girls team played their first league game of the season recently losing 5-1 to an experienced Riddlesdown team. Despite the result the girls still enjoyed the game hugely and showed some real class in defeat.
A big congratulations to the following players from Quest who have all represented the exciting YEAR 8 U13 Croydon District team this season. The team remain in 3 Cup competitions including being in the 4th round of the ESFA National cup!
