STANLEY COMMUNITY TRUST COLUMN
OUR Kids Cup tournament finals day took place at Accrington Academy on Tuesday, with seven primary schools from Hyndburn and the Ribble valley competing.
Belthorn Academy won the tournament, which is held in partnership with the EFL Trust and Hyndburn and Ribble Valley School Sport Partnership held qualifying rounds in both areas with the top four teams from each area invited to play in the final.
The Kids Cup is an under 11 football based tournament which all football in the community trust up and down the country run on behalf of the Football League Trust. Each Community Trust organise their local competitions, with each winner representing that football club at the Northern Finals, with a chance to get through to the National Finals, played at Wembley!
Belthorn Academy beat St Leonards Langho 2-1 in the final and go on to the Northern finals in March as well as walkout at a Stanley League One game.
