Year 8 Student Succeeds in Portugal


Last week we reported that Year 8 Crestwood Student, Jersey Lopez, had earned a spot on Birmingham City FC’s trip to Northern Portugal to compete in the Esposende Cup, an academy tournament that attracts teams from around the globe.

There were 32 teams in Birmingham’s age group meaning a route to the final would consist of 3 group games, a round of 16 game followed by quarter final, semi final and a final, all played over the course of 4 days.

We are excited to report that Jersey and his team mates made it all the way to the Final, eventually winning on penalties after a 1-1 draw which, included an equaliser for Birmingham in the last few seconds of the game.

The final was streamed live on the Esposende Cup Facebook Page and the game is now available to watch on playback.

Jersey flies back to the UK on Monday 8th July and will be back in school the following day sharing his incredible experience with his friends and teachers, before joining the Year 8 boys football team for training on Wednesday!
