The Bill Turner Cup is an under 15s knockout competition held annually, where schools from all over the state compete against each other.

On Thursday the 11th of April, the under 15s Football squad travelled to Strathfield Park to verse Fort Street High School. This was a great challenge for the squad as they have had a mixed start to the new season, however it was an opportunity to build chemistry for the long season ahead.

As the game progressed, the boys had a great hold on the possession and had a chance early on but hit came off the crossbar. However that was short lived as Homebush struck first, thanks to a great finish from Kevin Burca. As the first goal went into, Homebush took their opportunities further and Kevin Burca added to his goal tally by tapping in a goal off a well swung in corner kick.

The pattern of the game was similar in the second half, however our opponents increased the amount of chances within the game adding some pressure. Homebush boys though, withstood with pressure and it was not until a quick counter attack that Kevin Burca achieved his third goal of the day with a well struck finish just inside the box. Fort Street High School scored a consolation goal from the penalty spot and should be commended for their professionalism and sportsmanship throughout the whole game.

The game ended 3-1 in favour of Homebush Boys who now go on to face Rosebank College in the next round.

All students who participated in the squad should be proud of representing the school in such a professional manner. They understand the privilege to participate in these opportunities and will continue to flourish the Homebush Boys reputation in the sporting community.
