All eyes were on Wembley Stadium on Saturday, not just to see the npower Championship Play-Off Final, but to watch the two schools representing Cardiff City and Leicester City in the npower Championship Kids Cup Championship Final.
The game was highly-charged from the start as Romilly Primary's Sion Spence narrowly missed for Cardiff City. Shortly after, Thomas Bannatyne-Bilson from Martinshaw Primary School put in a great save for Leicester City.
Both sides enjoyed fantastic support from their family and friends, who were given tickets to watch them in the stands at Wembley. At the half time whistle it was 0-0 and it became clear that this was going to be a close game.
Minutes into the second half, Cardiff City put the pressure on up front and a lovely strike from their number nine, Will Drew, skimmed the crossbar. The tension grew as the seconds counted down in the second half taking the game to penalties. Leicester City's Luke Pinnick-Thornton stepped up to the spot first and scored, followed by a miss from Cardiff City.
Myles Rastall took the second penalty for Leicester City and scored a fantastic goal, putting the pressure on the opposition. Cardiff City narrowly missed their second penalty, meaning Leicester City won the title.
Each team were presented with their respective medals in an official presentation in the Royal Box at Wembley Stadium. After celebrations and photos, both teams then changed to become the npower flag-bearers and walked out with West Ham United and Blackpool ahead of the npower Championship Play-Off Final 2012.
Leicester City captain Finley Armitage said: "I can believe we won! It was such a close match. We are so proud to be here and can't wait to take the trophy back to school to show all our friends."
Cardiff City's Community Coach Dean Pymble said: "The kids have had a fantastic day, one they will never forget. We want to thank npower and The Football League for giving our lads the chance to play at Wembley Stadium".
Sponsored by npower, the Kids Cup is a national six-a-side tournament for U11 school children. The road to the Final at Wembley Stadium 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 progress to regional finals, where they face other schools representing their local Football League clubs, for the chance to play at The National Stadium.
