MATTIE Loader scored a last-minute winner to help lift the Kenway Cup for Charmouth School on the 3G at Beaminster School.

Charmouth faced Thorners in the final with both teams putting on a fantastic display of football in a closely-contested game.

Charmouth ended the match 1-0 winners and lifted the Kenway trophy for the first time in 20 years.

Charmouth went very close to scoring on several occasions with great attacking play from George Chapman, Theo Whitely, Alex Campion and Ollie Wren kept the pressure on Thorners.

Top scorer Loader got the decisive goal in the last minute of normal time after some excellent build-up play started at the back from Charmouth captain and man of the match Otis Travill.

The win completed an unprecedented treble of victories for Charmouth, who have also won the Go Active Intra Schools League and the Colfox World

Cup one-day tournament this season.

Charmouth’s stats across all competitions this year was 18 matches played and 18 wins with 85 goals scored in the process.

Goalkeepers Fred Morel and Adam Rowe shared an impressive 14 clean sheets between them.

Charmouth’s strong squad of 15 players included some pupils from Year Five, who were playing up a year group.

They included the tough tackling duo of girls Lemoni Gouldstone and Hollie Perryment, who were typically tenacious in defence.

Coaches Ross Travill and Ian Mouland said: “We are both really proud of the whole squad who have shown great team spirit and dedication.

“They have worked so hard over the last four years we’ve been coaching them and they fully deserve their success.”
