The event was contested in a great spirit with two teams in each age group awarded Spirit of the Game” prizes based on the attitude, sportsmanship and touchline and on-field conduct of their players, coaches and parents.
Louis Storey of the Academy said: “There was a lively and positive atmosphere throughout, ensuring everyone enjoyed the day.”
The festival also acted as a warm-up for the launch of the Academy’s new Youth Football Development League run in association with Newcastle East End.
Any team interested in joining the league this season or next should e-mail Louis Storey at louis@ newcastleeliteacademy.co.uk.
