In a game that could have gone either way Belper School's Y10's edged out John Flamsteed in the 2016/17 Amber Valley Football final at Belper Town FC
Belper dominated the first half, limiting John Flamsteed to scraps in the attacking sense from set pieces and break aways but their dominance couldnt be coverted into goals as John Flamsteed stood firm and began to slowly grow into the game
The second half was a different story, with John Flamsteed starting the half on the front foot and pegging Belper back in their own half for long periods - but Belper began to slowly find their feet in the half and create chances.
This perseverance was rewarded midway through the second half with an outstanding cross from the right and a well timed back post run to see Belper take a 1-0 lead
John Flamsteed began to put the pressure on from this point and Belper were forced to defend deeper but struggled to create anything clear cut until moments from the end when arguably their best chance was flashed over the top from inside the box
Belper managed to hang on in a game of few chances to get their hands on the trophy
Congratulations to both teams on making it through and on playing out such a close final
