Despite friendly rivalry, the pint-sized soccer aces were all eager to take home a trophy.

He added: “Preston schools are fortunate to have such a great partnership with local community sports organisers, and I am once again grateful for the tremendous support provided by the team at PNE.”

The small schools event was won by St Wilfrids, from Ribchester.

Following highly competitive group stages, Fulwood’s Harris Primary beating St Andrew’s CE in Ashton for third place, whilst Ribbleton Avenue Infants School, Preston, put up a great performance as runners-up, with Sherwood clinching the title.
