A young football team from Valley Gardens Middle School came home from Manchester triumphant when they beat off stiff competition to become local and county final winners.

The under-11 team not only won all their games, but they did not concede a single goal throughout the whole competition.

The youngsters had an outstanding approach to all of the games, and were described as worthy winners.

They will now represent the north of England at Bodymoor Health, the training ground for Aston Villa, on May 24 in the national finals.
