Arsenal School Herts U10s returned home from the 2015 ESF Festival of Football Finale in Warwick with the Championship trophy.

Having earned the right to attend the finale after their success at the ESF event in Disneyland Paris, Arsenal School Herts topped their table during the group stages of the final courtesy of a superior goal difference over Bromley Invictus FC. They then defeated Esher FC Lions 1-0 in the final.

With over 1,100 boys and girls teams participating every year, the ESF is the biggest youth football festival in the UK.

The victory was welcomed by Ben Roberts, from Arsenal School Herts, who said: “We’ve had a fantastic time at the ESF Festival of Football Finale, what a great series of events!

“Since we won the event in Disneyland Paris, we’ve had our eyes on the Finale and we’re delighted to come home with the trophy.

“I’m delighted that the kids were able to showcase their talent against the best of the best from across the country. I’m very proud of what we’ve achieved and we’ll definitely find a suitable way to celebrate!”
