Bradfield College is basking in the glory of a historic football season as the 1st XI team clinched their second title this year by winning the Hudl Independent Schools League.

The team’s outstanding performances continued after their Boodles ISFA Cup victory three weeks ago, cementing Bradfield’s position as a powerhouse in school football and achieving a feat last matched in 2022.

The journey to victory was secured with the 1stXI’s dominant display in the Hudl Independent Schools League, where they went head-to-head against nine of the nation’s top footballing schools.

Bradfield’s stellar run, comprising six wins and two draws, propelled them to the Hudl League title for the second time in three years.

A triumphant final day at Loughborough University saw Bradfield seal the League title with a commanding 5-0 victory over fifth-placed Royal Russell, further solidifying their dominance on the pitch.

In the Boodles ISFA Cup, the Bradfield College 1st XI conceded just once on their path to the final. Notable victories over formidable opponents, including Manchester Grammar School, Ardingly, Shrewsbury, and Millfield, led them to the final.

This set the stage for a thrilling showdown against Cheadle Hulme School. In a gripping match, Bradfield emerged triumphant with a 3-2 win, showcasing exceptional performances from co-Captains Ben and Marcus, along with the remarkable skills of Ike.

This triumph marks Bradfield’s third Boodles ISFA Cup victory in six years, further demonstrating the team’s consistency and excellence on the field.

Congratulations to David Chatwin, who assumed the role of Director of Football Performance at Bradfield following his tenure at Charlton Athletic Football Club last September. Chatwin’s coaching expertise and professional experience have played a pivotal role in guiding the team to success, particularly in navigating the challenges of transitioning after the departure of senior players from the previous season.

Earlier this week the 1st XI were losing semi-finalists in The English Schools FA (ESFA) competition to Barking Academy, a notable achievement considering the competition is open to all schools within the UK.
