The South Tyneside primary Schools FA Bart Rippon Cup took place on Friday 26th April at Temple Park. Fourteen schools took part in the tournament which was filled with superb football action played to a high level.
Mortimer placed in Group 1 and managed three wins and two draws. This placed them second in their group and meant they were going to meet Hedworth Lane (the winners of group 2) in the semi-finals. The game went to penalties after extra time which saw Mortimer coming away with a victory.
St Oswalds won their semi-final and the resulting final was a very close affair. Again the game resulted in extra time with Mortimer managing to score the winning goal. The boys faced very stiff opposition and did very well to secure the winning trophy in this very hard fought competition.
