Churchfields have reached the final of the Premier League Primary Stars tournament after they emerged as winners of the West Ham Foundation event for a second year running.
The primary school will now represent West Ham United in the under-11’s national finals at the Molineux Stadium, the home of the Wolverhampton Wolves.
In their four group games they only conceded a single goal as they defeated Manorfields 2-1, St Mary 1-0, Ripple 3-0 and Valance St George’s 3-0.
That took Churchfields through to the quarter-finals where they won 3-0 against Greenstead.
The semi-final was full of controversy in a tight contested encounter as a penalty was awarded to Richard Albion in extra time.
But the penalty was blasted wide and the game went to a penalty shoot-out where Churchfields sealed a 5-4 win.
The boys took immediate control of the final and were soon 3-0 up by half-time.
They held on to progress into the national finals for a second year running.
Miss Brown, the staff, the children of Churchfields, and parents are all very proud of the boys for reaching the finals.
