Slyne-with-Hest St Luke’s CE Primary School, representing Morecambe FC were crowned Champions of the npower Football League Kids Cup.
Playing on Wembley’s hallowed turf before the League Two Play-Off final between Bradford and Northampton, Slyne-with-Hest St Luke’s beat Gillingham representatives Minterne Junior School 2-1 in a thrilling final.
The Lancashire school raced into a commanding 2-0 lead, but had to survive a late onslaught, as Minterne pulled a goal back and were pushing hard for an equaliser at the death.
The victory capped off an outstanding campaign, which saw St Luke’s progress through local and regional phases of the national schools competition, before their big day at Wembley.
As well as getting to play on the pitch, the kids enjoyed a full cup final experience with a tour of the stadium and were presented with their trophy in the Royal Box – just like the pros.
And npower’s Clare McDougall said: “It was a game of exceptional quality, but Slyne-with-Hest St Luke’s just had the edge and deserved their victory.
“It’s such a shame there had to be a loser in this match, but Minterne Junior School were worthy finalists and fully contributed to a brilliant game.”

Whatever happens come the end of the football season, Morecambe will be represented at Wembley in May, as Slyne-with-Hest St Luke’s School have made the final of the npower Football League Kids Cup.
Having won the right to represent Morecambe at the local stages of the competition, Slyne-with-Hest St Luke’s School then triumphed on March 12 in Bradford, beating schools representing other League 2 clubs.
They will now play Minterne Junior School, representing Gillingham in the final of the national under 11’s competition.
The game will be played on the hallowed turf of Wembley Stadium in build up to the League 2 play-off final on May 18.
As a further bonus, Slyne-with-Hest St Luke’s School will also receive a coaching session from former England defender and ITV pundit Gareth Southgate as they prepare for their big day.
Clare McDougall, Head of Community and Education at npower said: “Surprisingly few professional football players get the chance to play at Wembley Stadium, so the pupils of Slyne-with-Hest St Luke’s School have every reason to be very proud of their achievements. Even if they don’t win the final, they’ll have an experience of a lifetime and Gareth will help them prepare for it.
“This is our third year of sponsoring the npower Football League Kids Cup and the standard keeps on getting higher, so I’m sure we’ll see another cracking final on the day.”
This year’s tournament saw 1,784 schools enter the npower Football League Kids Cup, meaning nearly 15,000 pupils in total took part. The first stage of the tournament sees Football League clubs arrange a local tournament for schools, to determine who will represent the club in the competition.
The schools then compete in regional finals, which are split by the three divisions of the Football League, meaning there is a final for each of the three leagues.
The npower Championship, npower League 1 and npower League 2 Kids Cup finals are all played in the build up to the corresponding play-off finals played at Wembley Stadium in May.
