Aspiring Cristiano Ronaldos having been showing their skills at Braywick Park in a primary schools football tournament.

Fourteen schools took to the pitches at Maidenhead Rugby Club on Thursday.

The seven to nine-year-olds from years three and four were competing for the right to represent Ascot and Maidenhead in the Berkshire Schools Games Finals being held in Bradfield College, Bradfield, on Wednesday, April 2.

About 175 children took part in the afternoon of football at Braywick Road.

The competition was delivered by sports leadership students from Claires Court School in conjunction with the Ascot and Maidenhead School Sports Partnership (SSP).

St Edmund Campion, from Altwood Road, beat Claires Court Junior Boys, from The Thicket in the final.

BTEC sports students from Claires Court Sixth Form, in College Avenue, organised and officiated the entire tournament.

The school's sports development officer, Charlotte Wright, said: "They had to email the schools, book the ptiches, organise the equipment, then they did everything on the day. It was great."

Football for year three and year four children has been added to the Berkshire Schools Games for the first time this year.

The games are held as part of the National School Games which aims to get young people involved with sport.
