Finchley Catholic National Cup Finalists – Follow the Action!

Year 10 – ESFA National Cup Final – Madjeski Stadium – Reading FC

Finchley Catholic High School vs St Francis Xavier College

Tuesday 22nd May 2018 – 1.30 Kick off

The remarkable and emotional journey of the year 10 football team comes to an end on Tuesday 22nd May when Finchley will meet St Francis Xavier College from Liverpool.

The team has been through many ups and downs this season including losing 8 key players to long term injuries along the way to the final. Despite this, the team has pulled through, showing tremendous resilience and togetherness.

This is the first time that Finchley has made it to the national cup final in the school’s history so the boys have been doing all that they can to make a good account for themselves in the game. They have taken part in video analysis sessions, weekly gym training, yoga, and pitch training to ensure that they are in peak physical condition for the final.

The school will be taking a fleet of coaches to the final so that as many of our pupils can experience this historic event as possible.

For parents who would like to watch the game but are unable to make the journey to Reading, use the link below where the game will be streamed live. 


We would like to thank parents and the community for all of their support to date – it has meant a great deal to the team to know the whole FCHS family is behind them as they make their final preparations!
