This turned out to be too big of a climb for the boys with the end result 4-2 to Bishop Eton. A really disappointing result for the boys who are now looking to put the result behind them and move on to the next game.

It was a very close game between Team A and team B and the score was 1 - 2 to Team B.

Team B unfortunately lost 2-1 in the final. They should be in the City Finals but we will be having fun at PGL so they can't attend.

Premier League Primary Stars Finals

Tuesday 21st May
After qualifying some months ago to represent Everton Football Club in the Premier League Primary Stars National
Finals, the long-awaited day finally arrived and our boys got to play at Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Molineux Stadium.
On Monday, with great excitement, the team boarded EFC’s first team coach and travelled down in style for an
overnight hotel stay, ready for a very early morning start for the tournament itself. At the hotel, they enjoyed a lovely
meal and some downtime in the hotel pool and were presented with their EFC personalised kits and jackets to wear
on the day.
On match day, the team, parents and staff again boarded EFC’s luxury coach to travel to Molineux Stadium and meet
the other teams from all around the country who had qualified to represent their local Premier League Clubs. The 40
teams competing on the day (20 boys’/mixed and 20 girls’ teams) had progressed to this point from more than 1600
teams with 14 500 children – just to have qualified to be there was an impressive and awe-inspiring achievement!
The standard of competition was really high, with the official Premier League referees seen at times applauding
particular impressive play by some of the best young players the entire country has to offer. The children were also
given the opportunity to see and be photographed with the Premier League Trophy.
Our boys were up against four really strong teams in the group stages, facing representatives of Wolverhamptom
Wanderers, Fulham, Burnley and Newcastle United. Unfortunately, we didn’t progress to the semi-finals; however, the
boys enjoyed watching the final games and thoroughly applauded the eventual winners, Brighton & Hove Albion.
Throughout the day, the four Premier League referees were scoring each team out of 10 in each game for ‘fair play’

and teams were advised at the beginning of the day that these scores would be collated and, in the event of a tie-
break on points and goal difference, would be used as a decider to progress beyond group stages. Whilst this didn’t

eventually occur, we were delighted and proud when, at the end of day presentations, our boys, representing EFC,
were declared the overall winners of the ‘Fair Play Award’, receiving a beautiful trophy and individual goodie bags.
Congratulations boys; we are incredibly proud of you!
Thank you to parents who rearranged their schedules to ensure they could travel and stay with the boys and to all
who joined us on the day to support.
The journey came to an end on Friday, when the boys were presented with their Premier League Finalists’ medals
and goodie bags, in collective worship, and the entire school shared their experience through photographs and a
recount by Mr Hawthorne. Well done, everybody; a fantastic end to another incredible season!
