Football teams competed for the top when Soccer PM held its first district-wide finals at Featherstone Sports Centre.

Six teams took part in the tournament run by Wakefield Council’s sports and active lifestyles – two each from Knottingley, Featherstone and Wakefield.

The two-hour tournament involved 35 young people aged from 13 to 17. After a close-run league tournament, Wakefield Thornes Park came out on top, but in the play-off final the Knottingley team clinched the championship on a penalty shootout.

Craig Moss, community development officer, said “The tournament was played in great spirit and we are looking forward to our next finals day on April 12.”
