Asfordby Captains Close School edged out Brownlow Primary School to win the Year 3 and 4 competition, while Stathern Primary School took the Year 5 and 6 honours from runners-up Churchill C of E School, Thurmaston.

Tournament organiser Peter Davies, of AALGFC, said: “It was great to see how well the tournament is growing.

“A special mention to Long Clawson Primary School, a village school who entered two teams, all new to girls’ football.

“It was great to see so many girls playing football who hadn’t played before and are improving and developing each game.”
