Plantation storm to victory

Plantation Primary in Halewood stormed to victory at the Etihad Stadium winning the National Premier League Schools Tournament.
The school’s under-11 boys team won the opportunity to represent Liverpool FC at the Premier League Schools Tournament after beating off tough competition from schools across Merseyside.
Each of the 20 Barclays Premier League Clubs stages their own competition to select a school to represent them on finals day. This year more than 10,000 players from more than 1,300 schools across the country battled it out for the right to play at the Etihad Stadium.
The Plantation Primary team comfortably won their Finals Group and went on to meet the team representing Fulham in the semi-finals. Fulham has won the competition for the last two years running. Unintimidated the Plantation Primary team stormed to a 3-1 victory.
The team played the pupils representing Crystal Palace in the final which they went on to win 2-0.
The Plantation Primary School team were crowned the 2014 Premier League Schools Tournament champions and presented with a replica Premier League trophy.
Ian Hardman, headteacher at Plantation Primary School, said: “It was a fantastic event and a wonderful opportunity for our pupils to play on a pitch at a Premier League ground where some of the best players in the world have performed.
“The team had a really authentic Premier League experience - wearing the Liverpool FC club kit, using the Manchester City dressing rooms, and walking out of the tunnel to the Premier League anthem.
“To go on and lift the trophy was just the perfect end to a great day of finals football. We’re all very, very proud of the team!”
