Budding football stars of the future took to the Goodison Park turf last week as the Everton Schools Partnership Finals took place.
 
Organised by the Club's Academy Recruitment department, the annual event offers primary school students the chance to grace the famous stadium and play in front of watching Blues scouts.
 
Starting last September, 6,500 children participated in this season’s tournament as teams in various age groups played off to reach the Goodison showpiece.  
 
In the year five final, St. Paul’s defeated Plantation 2-0, while Our Lady of Compassion hardly lived up to their sympathetic name, storming to a 6-3 win over Matthew Arnold in the year two clash.

A young goalscorer wheels away in celebration.
 
Our Lady of Compassion – who appeared in an impressive three finals on the day – then racked up another 6-3 victory in the year one match up but fell short of an impressive hat-trick after going down 4-2 to the year threes of St Paul’s.  

A penalty shootout was required to split eventual winners Long View and Leamington in the year six final, before the year fours of St Peters and Paul completed the afternoon with a comprehensive 4-1 success against Holy Rosary.
 
“Today has been a victory for football in general, the standard of play was excellent and the respect shown for each other – and the match officials – was first class,” said Everton’s Academy Recruitment Officer Ray Redmond. “To even get the chance to play at Goodison is a massive achievement.
 
“We as a Club are all really impressed with all their efforts and I am sure all the family and friends who saw them today are too. They have done themselves and the schools they represent proud.”
