John Keble School from Harlesden will represent Chelsea in the Premier League Schools Tournament.


A school in Harlesden has won the right to represent Chelsea at the nationwide Premier League Schools Tournament.

John Keble Primary School travelled to Chelsea’s training ground in Cobham to take part in the Chelsea finals of the Premier League tournament.

The top six teams from across London, Surrey, Sussex, Kent and Essex were invited with each team playing against each other in a league format.

The boys from the Crownhill Road school got off to a great start with a 1-0 win in their opening game thanks to a Rashane goal.

The next game was against the Sussex champions, a team containing three academy players and despite conceding first, the boys fought back hard and they managed to equalise late on through D’Jahnni.

Up next were the Surrey champions, arguably one of the strongest opposition.

The boys played brilliantly with some excellent marking and defending from Elluyani and a great performance from Donte who scored the only goal.

Toure was also excellent in this match, listening carefully to Coach Eddie’s instruction he played the opposition’s star player out of the game.

High on confidence the boys won their next match 3-0 with two goals from Donte and one from D’Jahnni.

Saad also made a fantastic save from an opposition penalty.

Due to other results, the boys knew that a win in the last game would be enough to win the tournament and progress through to the national event.

Donte opened the scoring after two minutes from the penalty spot but with six minutes left to play it was 1-1.

However, two late goals saw them run out 3-1 winners and clinch the tournament title.

The tournament final will take place in May at a Premier League ground with 20 schools from across the country competing.

John Keble: Saad, Romel, Rashane, Christopher, Toure, Donte, D’Jahnni, Elluyani
