In a historic moment for our school and the town of Warrington, the Year 8 football team has secured the coveted 'Warrington Inspiration Award 2024'. This remarkable achievement marks a milestone not only for the team but also for the entire community.


Last year, our talented athletes made headlines by clinching the ESFA National Cup, a feat never before accomplished by any team from Warrington. Their dedication, skill, and passion for the game propelled them to victory, making history as the first team from our town to claim a national title in football. In an exhilarating match held at West Bromwich Albion's ground, The Hawthorns, the team emerged victorious with a 2-1 triumph over Shenfield High School from Essex.


Their outstanding success caught the attention of the selection committee for the 'Warrington Inspiration Awards 2024'. After careful consideration, the team was shortlisted among the final three nominees in the 'SPORTSPERSON/SPORTS TEAM OF THE YEAR' category.


"On behalf of the coaching staff, I couldn't be prouder of these boys and their incredible achievement," said Mr. McCann, one of the team's coaches. "Their hard work, resilience, and team spirit have truly paid off, and they deserve every bit of recognition they receive."


On the evening of April 25th, 2024, at The Village Hotel, anticipation filled the air as the town gathered to celebrate its most inspirational individuals. Amongst the 12 awards presented, the moment everyone had been waiting for arrived when our Year 8 football team was announced as the winner of the 'SPORTSPERSON/SPORTS TEAM OF THE YEAR' category.


Cheers erupted, and emotions ran high as Great Sankey High was read out as the winner of the award. Their hard work, resolve, and unwavering team spirit have not only brought glory to our school but have also served as an inspiration to the entire community.


As we reflect on this remarkable achievement, we extend our heartfelt congratulations to every member of the Year 8 football team, their dedicated coaches, and everyone who has supported them on this incredible journey. You have made Warrington proud, and your legacy will continue to inspire future generations of athletes.


The 'Warrington Inspiration Award 2024' serves as a testament to the power of passion, teamwork, and perseverance. Let this victory be a reminder to us all that with dedication and determination, anything is possible.


Congratulations once again to our extraordinary Year 8 football team. Your triumph will forever be etched in the archives of Warrington's sporting history.
