Wallsend BC Barca U9s returned home to the North East from the 2016 ESF Grand Finale at St George’s Park with the ESF Championship trophy.
Having earned the right to attend the event after their performance at the ESF festival in Butlin’s Skegness, Wallsend BC Barca put in a superb performance at St George’s Park to be crowned ESF Grand Finale champions.
With 1,200 teams participating every year, the ESF Festival of Football is the UK’s biggest youth football festival.
Martyn Young, from ESF Events said: “To be crowned ESF Grand Finale champions really is a fantastic achievement, the players and coaches and supporters should be really proud of themselves.
