Every school boys dream is to play on a Premier League pitch, and this dream most certainly did come true as the Churchfields football team were representing West Ham United in the Premier League Primary Stars National Finals, which this season were hosted by Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.
The boys played Liverpool (0-2) Crystal Palace (1-0) Watford
(0-1) and Tottenham Hotspur (0-2). 1600 schools originally entered the competition, and Churchfields were in the elite final of just 20 schools, which is a quite remarkable achievement. The boys enjoyed the experience and behaved impeccably throughout the trip and even had the opportunity to be photographed in the home team dressing room with the prestigious Premier League trophy.
Thank you to the West Ham United Foundation and to the parents for their support throughout our incredible journey.
