Sunnyfields Primary School progress to North Finals
Sunnyfields Primary School lived their EFL Kids Cup dream on Saturday as they beat Owston 2-0 at the Keepmoat Stadium.
The two schools had progressed to the final of Club Doncaster Foundation’s event last week and the decider was played out on the Keepmoat turf before Doncaster Rovers’ clash with Bristol Rovers.
Sunnyfields now get the chance to represent Doncaster Rovers in the next round of the cup, which sees teams from across the country compete in the EFL Kids Cup League 1 North Finals.
Schools co-ordinator, Kelly Jackson said: “We were so impressed with the professionalism from both Sunnyfields and Owston on the day and I know everyone who came to watch were thoroughly entertained with the final.
“Playing on the pitch was a dream come true for many of them and now it’s even better that Sunnyfields get to pull on the Rovers strip and actually represent them at the League 1 North Finals.
“Both teams should be very proud of their efforts and how far they have come.”
