On the weekend of 6 and 7 December, football games across the country commemorated the famous Christmas football match played between British and German soldiers in 1914. Our photo above shows YMS together with friendly rivals The Purcell School on the Sunday. This year Purcell carried the day with a decisive win at their home ground. In a near mirror of last year, when YMS won 6-3, the opposition came back stronger and took the cup. YMS boys played with great vigour and were gracious in defeat but are resolved to take back the silverware next year. Thanks to all at The Purcell School who made our players and supporters very welcome in this annual friendly derby.
