Held at the Castle Sports Complex in Spalding, the tournament attracted 11 soccer teams to the six-a-side knock-out competition.

St John’s met Moulton Chapel Primary School in the final – and with just 65 pupils on the school roll, players as young as nine took part.

Other schools taking part were Monkshouse, St Norbert’s and St Paul’s from Spalding, Gosberton, Holbeach (Boston Road), and Quadring.
