Monkseaton Juniors are celebrating after winning a national trophy.
The club’s Under 11 side took the honours for their age group at the 2014 ESF Festival Finale held at the University of Warwick Football Centre.
Monkseaton Juniors qualified for the tournament after taking part in the Festival of Football at Butlins, in Skegness, earlier this year.
Joanne Quinn, from Monkseaton Juniors FC said: “The whole team is thrilled with our victory, what a weekend it was at the University of Warwick.
“Events like this are a great opportunity for the kids to showcase their talent against some of the top teams in the country, but mainly to enjoy themselves.
“The whole weekend ran seamlessly and hopefully we’ll be back next year to defend our title.
“There aren’t any plans for an open top bus parade just yet but I’m sure we’ll find a way to celebrate being the 2014 ESF Festival Finale champions.”
Martyn Young, at ESF Events, added: “With thousands of talented participants involved, the 2014 ESF Festival of Football has been another highly successful series of events.”
