A DOMINANT display from Riverside saw them crowned Herefordshire Primary Schools Football Champions held at Wyeside.

Some 24 schools from across the county took part in the tournament held in glorious weather.

Split into four groups, there were lots of closely fought games with many of the groups being decided by goal difference.

Brockhampton, who had not scored a goal or gained a point in the group stages, won the Bowl Competition defeating Much Birch in the final on penalties after the game had finished goalless after extra-time.

The Plate Competition, for sides finishing third or fourth in their group, was another closely contested affair between Madley and Marlbrook.

Play went from end to end with both goalkeepers called into action before Madley struck the winner in the closing stages.

A powerful shot was well saved by the Marlbrook keeper but Connors Carey-Williams was on hand to lash the rebound home and give Madley a 1-0 win.

In the Cup Competition, Riverside took on city rivals St Paul’s in the final.

St Paul’s had beaten Ewyas Harold in the quarter-final and Lord Scudamore after a marathon penalty shoot-out in the semi-final.

Riverside had enjoyed a smoother passage with a 4-0 win against Orleton and a 3-0 semi-final victory over Ledbury.

In the final, Riverside took the lead with a superb long range effort from Dominik Zawadzki before further goals from Oliver Bradley and Kacper Biela secured a comfortable 3-0 victory.
