A last-minute winner saw John Keble crowned champions of The Elms Sport in Schools Inter-Primary Football Tournament.

A total of 28 schools from across Brent and neighbouring Harrow took part in the competition, held at Goals Wembley.

The teams were split into four groups of seven, with each school playing six eight-minute matches, with the top four qualifying for the knockout stages.

The Brent-based teams who progressed from the group stage were Southfield, Anson ‘A’, Anson ‘B’, John Keble, Wykeham ‘A’, Wykeham ‘B’, Byron Court and St. Andrew & St. Francis.

After a plethora of goals and some tense matches, including a penalty shoot-out win for Southfield over Anson ‘A’, they were one of four teams to reach the semi-finals.

John Keble also reached the final four, as did Harrow-based teams Sinai and Park Lane.

With lots of support from all of the other schools that stayed on to watch, John Keble and Sinai cruised through to the final.

Both teams were fired up for the final, with the trophy within reaching distance, and John Keble took the lead, putting the first goal past the Sinai keeper.

Sinai soon equalised to make it 1-1 and then, with a penalty, took the lead after a John Keble player stepped into the penalty area of the five-a-side pitch.

John Keble then equalised to set up a grandstand finish as both teams pushed hard for a winner.

And with time almost up, a last-minute goal scored by John Keble ensured they would be celebrating at the final whistle.

“The children had a great day out and really enjoyed themselves,” said John Keble teacher Mr Collier after the medals had been handed out.

• The Elms Sport in Schools provide sports provision across the capital to 25,000 children a week and run free sports tournaments every term which are open for everyone to participate.

The competions have proved to be a good way of organising competition and encouraging physical activity in a fun and friendly environment.
