Briercliffe Primary School became Lancashire Under 11s champions after a hard fought competition at JMO Sports in Skelmersdale.

The school qualified after being crowned BFC Community champions in January.

Unbeaten Briercliffe came into the competition on the back of nine straight wins, and advanced to the semi-finals after 3-0 and 2-1 wins and a 1-0 defeat.

In the semi-final, against their opponents from their second group match – the only team to beat Briercliffe so far this season, the game finished 1-1 after extra time, but Briercliffe scored all five of their penalties, taking them through to the final against St Peter’s Morecambe, which again went to penaltirs, where Briercliffe prevailed.
