Students from John Keble School had plenty to celebrate after winning the PL Primary Stars Football Tournament.

The youngsters were representing Premier League side Chelsea in the competition, which was held at Leicester City’s King Power Stadium.

After several near misses in recent season, the talented prospects finally got their hands on the trophy, beating a team representing Newcastle United 1-0 in the mixed under-11s final.

“Winning this means a lot. It’s been four years in the making,” said Edward Prempeh, John Keble School’s learning mentor and football coach.

“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.

“Our school faces a lot of challenges. We are in a high crime-rate area and football is a way out for a lot of these children.

“This will affect the whole school. For the kids coming through now that they have got something to emulate.”

John Keble School also have something to look forward to on Saturday, with students representing Queens Park Rangers in the final of the ELF Kids Cup.

The match will take place at Wembley Stadium on Saturday ahead of the Sky Bet Championship play-off final between Fulham and Aston Villa.
