Late final stunner sinks the Ferry; SCHOOL SPORT.

Byline: TIM JOHNSON

ROCK FERRY High School's hopes of becoming the first Wirral School to win an under-16 national 11-a-side title were crushed in injury time at the City of Manchester Stadium.

It was cruel on the Rock Ferry side who led 4-0 at one stage before a goal from Sean Adderley completed a spirited fightback from Torquay Grammar school to earn his side an unlikely 5-4 win.

This scarcely seemed possible when goals from Luke Baugh, Billy Foster, Ryan Youds and Ross Parry put the Merseyside lads 4-0 up inside 24 minutes, and it was 4-1 at the interval.

An inspired second half display from Torquay, though, rocked the local team.

They pulled it back to 4-4 and then with extra time beckoning there was late heartbreak for Rock Ferry High.

In the Under-13 ESFA Minute Maid final at Prenton Park, Cardinal Heenan lost 3-1 to Thomas More School, North Shields.

Chris Long was on target from a Lewis Jones cross for the West Derby School.
