Association Football

Football plays an integral part of both the curricular and extra curricular programme at Borlase.  It has a long and varied  history.  When games programmes were introduced into Borlase during the late 19th century, Association Football was the only version played.  This continued up to the 1930s when it was completely replace with rugby union.  The association game only then re-emerged in the early 2000s.

Since then it has established itself as a very popular and successful sport for all Borlasians.  It runs throughout the games programme for all year groups and is played annually as an inter-house sport.  As an extra-curricular activity it is played competitively in the Spring term where we have teams for boys in all year groups entered into the Wycombe District Leagues. The girls district league was formed in 2015.

 

The 1st XI boys team play over both the Autumn and Spring term.  They enter the Buckinghamshire Schools County cup and the South Bucks VI for Cup.  In 2015 and 2017 they won the County Cup final. In 2017, they also reached the last 32 in the Country in the National Trophy. The 1st XI girls team was formed in 2016.
