Carnforth High School’s Year 8 team have reached the English Schools FA Cup semi-finals after coming from behind to beat Bury Grammar School 2-1.

After a shaky start and falling behind to Bury’s only shot on goal in the entire game, Carnforth fought back strongly and deservedly equalised when Joe Jobling raced onto a through ball by Ewan Dean to finish well.

With seven minutes remaining, Dean again was the provider when he crossed for Tyler Hanafin to head past the on-rushing goalkeeper.

Carnforth will now travel to King’s School, Chester, in the last four on Tuesday, February 24 in a 3.15pm kick-off.
