A hat-trick of trophies has been netted by our Year 7 boys’ football team here at Blatchington Mill.

The boys won the treble after first winning the Brighton & Hove District Schools’ FA League, the Brighton and Hove District School Cup and the Sussex Schools’ County Cup – making Blatch history.

The all-conquering team played 21 games in total and only lost one match, scoring a grand total of 41 goals and conceding just four goals during the triumphant season.

After winning the league, the Blatchington boys beat Patcham High School 3-0 to win the Brighton and Hove District Cup, and Downlands 5-0 – becoming the first team to achieve the treble at Blatchington Mill School.
