Corpus Christi Catholic Primary School were crowned champions of the npower League 1 Kids Cup when they overcame Chetwynd Junior School 2-0 on penalties following a 1-1 draw at Wembley Stadium.

Representing Brentford, Corpus Christi were triumphant in the Kids Cup Final, which took place prior to the npower League 1 Play-Off Final at the national stadium, with Benjamin Elliot scoring the winning spot-kick.

Following the match, each team climbed the stairs up to Wembley's Royal Box and were presented with their respective medals.

And, after the presentation was complete and the photos had been taken, players from both teams became the npower flag-bearers and walked out with Brentford and Yeovil Town before they locked horns for a place in the npower Championship.

After the encounter, Corpus Christi captain Jordan Aina said: "It felt fantastic playing at Wembley and it really encourages us for the future.

"It was a brilliant experience to play in such big stadium - It's definitely something I'll be telling people about."

Before the decisive penalties, an even match had taken place, with both teams battling out an impressive Final during the allotted 14 minutes of play.

As the friends and families of the players roared their respective teams on, the game kicked off, and the first chance fell the way of the Bees' representatives.

Elliot surged through the midfield with intent and played a perfectly weighted, defence-splitting pass to Ethan Etukudo who was denied by Chetwynd stopper Jake Bull.

Corpus Christi continued to pile on the pressure and, after referee John Hopkins took a comical tumble, they were denied again by Bull, as he kept out a dangerous free-kick.

The Sky Blues' representatives then managed to get a foothold in the game and had half a chance of their own when Jack Edwards looked to find the net from distance, only to be denied by opposing 'keeper Gearard Hopkins.

After a short half-time break, the two sides came back out and it didn't take long for the deadlock to be broken, with Chetwynd front man Ethan Meadows turning inside expertly and firing home with the outside of his right boot.

Corpus Christi were straight back at their opponents, though, and grabbed an equaliser when Jamal Musiala slotted home after receiving a tidy through-ball from Etukudo.

And that's how the scoreline stayed after 14 minutes of play, meaning penalties would decide the winner of the npower League 1 Kids Cup.

It was heartbreak for Chetwynd as they missed two spot-kicks, while Corpus Christi scored their opening two, with Elliot keeping his cool to hit the winner.

Corpus Christi teacher Tony Mesourouni, who accompanied the kids at the national stadium, said: "I'm overwhelmed. I'm really proud of the boys. It's not a nice way to win, or lose of course, on penalties, but luckily for us we managed to take it.

"The game itself was fantastic. You could see the boys were a little bit nervous but as soon as the goals went in they got the ball down and played it around well and there wasn't a lot between the two teams.

"It's been brilliant since we arrived at Wembley. Doing the tour, both inside and outside the stadium, was just fantastic."

Kids Cup League 1 teams

Sponsored by npower, the Kids Cup is a national six-a-side tournament for Under-11 school children. The road to the Final under the arch at Wembley started back in September with each Football League club having organised their own local stage to find the best team to represent their club.

These schools then progressed to regional finals, where they faced other schools representing their local Football League clubs, for the chance to play at the national stadium.
