MILLBROOK Primary School hosted the Swindon Primary Schools' Football Association finals day.

The opening fixture pitted Haydon Wick against Westlea in the Plate, Westlea taking the lead in the first half before Haydon Wick equalised with their first attack of the second half.

Sterling work by both defences meant the tie went into extra time and eventually penalties, which saw Haydon Wick come out on top, winning 3-1 as they collected their trophy from Swindon MP Justin Tomlinson.

Game two was equally close as North League champions St Francis' C of E faced West League victors, St Mary's C of E, who dominated the first half and snuck into the lead three minutes before the break.

St Francis' rallied in the second period and levelled midway through the half, going on to dictate much of play during extra-time and rattling the woodwork three times, without registering.

A tense penalty shoot-out ended level after all five kicks, before St Francis held on to win 3-2 and lift the shield for the first time.

The Primary Schools' (Girls') Cup saw Ruskin force Holy Cross R C to defend deep in their own half for long periods.

In the second half Ruskin took the lead and doubled their advantage five minutes later.

A third goal late on sealed the win for the Upper Stratton school, who were handed the trophy by guest of honour, Abby Picton, from Swindon Town Ladies.

Lethbridge, who had not lost a game all season, faced Covingham Park in the Primary Schools' Cup final.

Both sides had chances to score in the first half but were denied by determined defences, while the second half was just as tight before Lethbridge finally broke the deadlock in extra time.

They scored again late in extra time, with the trophy was presented by the Mayor of Swindon in his first official engagement.

"It was a fantastic day and a fitting way to end our season. All the players should feel proud of their performance, regardless of the result", said Steve Beale, secretary of Swindon PSFA.

"They have all represented the schools superbly and I am sure they will remember this day for a long time."
