Youngsters have enjoyed a week to remember in football competitions

John Keble Primary School continued their winning week by triumphing in the EFL Kids Cup Championship Grand Final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

The youngsters were representing Queens Park Rangers in the final and beat Greenhill Primary, playing for Sheffield Wednesday, in the final.

That followed success for John Keble School last week in the PL Primary Stars Football Tournament when they were representing Chelsea.

The youngsters travelled to the Leicester City’s King Power Stadium for the competition, where they beat a team representing Newcastle United 1-0 in the mixed under-11s final.

“Going into secondary school, they will always look back at this and say to themselves, we can do what we put our hard work into.”
