Schoolkids' dream day at Primary Stars Tournament

29 May 2019

Watch the best of the day at Molineux as hundreds of schoolchildren get the chance to be Premier League players

Last week hundreds of schoolchildren experienced life as a professional footballer for the day at the Premier League Primary Stars Football Tournament

Held at Molineux Stadium, the home of Wolverhampton Wanderers, the under-11 girls' trophy was won by Leicester City's Queensmead Academy while Orchards Junior School triumphed for Brighton & Hove Albion in the mixed competition.

And for the 320 kids who got to use the same dressing rooms that the professionals use on matchday, come down the tunnel to the Premier League anthem and have their matches refereed by PL officials, the day will be one they will never forget.

"It's a once-in-a-lifetime chance," said one youngster playing for West Ham United. "As a child you only get to play in your flats or garden, you don't get to play at these gigantic stadiums."

This year the tournament involved 14,500 children from more than 1,600 schools, who took part in regional competitions to represent their local Premier League club.

The PL Primary Stars Football Tournament is the highlight of the Primary Stars programme, which inspires children in more than 16,000 schools across England and Wales.
