After a scintillating series of group games, quarter-finals and semi-finals using the superb facilities of Fleetwood Town’s training base in Thornton, it was neighbouring Fleetwood schools Flakefleet and Shakespeare who won through to the final.

The first half of this absorbing decider was very close but Shakespeare pulled clear in the second to run out 3-0 winners.

Young referees from Cardinal Allen and Millfield ensured the smooth running of a competition run by the Fylde and Wyre School Sports Partnership.
