Young footballers from West End Primary School in Hemsworth reached the semi-finals of a mini World Cup tournament.

But, just like Holland in Brazil 2014, the team was knocked out on penalties by Moorthorpe Primary School, which went on to win the tournament at Hemsworth Arts and Community Academy.

The West End team did manage to pick up the fair play team award for good sportsmanship while captain Connah Taylor received the player of the tournament award for some outstanding performances on the pitch.

Team coach Danny Outram is setting up a football league for primary schools across the area during the 2014-15 season.

Any primary school interested in joining should call Mr Outram on 01977 723705.
