Kids Cup Finals to take place at Wembley this weekend

21 May 2014

Six schools will represent their local Football League clubs in the Kids Cup Finals at Wembley Stadium this weekend.

The Kids Cup is an under-11 competition that culminates in three Wembley finals across the Sky Bet Football League Play-Off weekend and provides young school children with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

After enjoying overnight accommodation the day before their match and then a stadium tour in the morning, the youngsters have the chance to play on the famous Wembley pitch.

The first Kids Cup Final is on Saturday 24th May, when Bournemouth play Bolton Wanderers, represented by St James' Church of England Primary School and Bolton School respectively.

St James' will be led out by captain Lyle Simpson in the 1:40pm kick-off, while goalkeeper Jensen Myerscough is the Bolton School skipper.

A day later, on Sunday, Leyton Orient and Notts County will go head-to-head in a battle between Chase Lane Primary School and Nottingham School. Harvey Livings-Corbin is hoping to lift the cup for the East London school - where David Beckham was educated - while his Nottingham counterpart is Samuel King.

The final match is on Monday, when AFC Wimbledon and Fleetwood Town go up against each other. Corpus Christi Catholic Primary School will be representing the Dons while Hambleton Primary are playing for Fleetwood Town. Corpus Christi are captained by Ben Elliott, while Joshua Hampson is the youngster who will lead out Hambleton.

The six teams will also be wearing the colours of their respective club, with fresh kit provided by Mitre.

All three Finals will be refereed by the reserve assistant referee for the Play-Off Final; meaning Ian Hussin, Rob Merchant and Lee Swabey will take charge of the Championship, League 1 and League 2 Kids Cup Finals respectively.
