Alsop Students Win PES Competition

Alsop High School students had a fantastic evening at the @Red_Neighbours PES 2018 tournament in the new Liverpool Football Club Store.

Eight local community schools were invited with the chance to play against Liverpool footballers Georgino Wijnaldum and Jon Flanagan. Year 11 students Phillip Leamey and Regan Kneale beat Cardinal Heanan and we are delighted that they have been crowned ‘Red Neighbours and Konami PES 2018 champions.

The students had the unbelievable experience of playing a one off game against Georgino Wijnaldum and Jon Flanagan. They had a chance to win but missed a penalty in the 85thminute. This is something which they may live to regret. The game went to a penalty shoot-out. Liverpool players showed their nerves of steel and calmly scored every penalty.

Mr Deakin comments:

“Huge congratulations to both Philip and Regan. What a fabulous achievement and certainly a night to remember!”
