Ackworth Juniors Football Club won the Premier League Kicks tournament which took place at the Keepmoat Stadium in the evening of May 21.

The tournament was made up of 20 teams including grassroots teams, Kicks teams, and local schools team who all competed well throughout the event.

The competitive group stage was followed by two semi-finals, with winners Ackworth knocking out Sheffield Wednesday en route to the final. The other semi-final saw Hallcross Academy defeat Doncaster Schools in a dramatic penalty-shootout with 20 penalties taken before the tie could be decided.

The final was decided by just one goal but the West Yorkshire side were deserved winners for their expansive, clinical football.

Guinness World Record holder, Ash Randall, performed some mind-blowing skills for the players to try and match and students from the Club Doncaster Sports College helped run the event, scoring and timing the games.

The Foundation’s sport development officer, Mark Cooper said: “It was great to see so many grassroots and local teams from other football club charities come down to the Keepmoat Stadium and take part.

“The entire event ran smoothly from start to finish, with the Sports College students doing a fantastic job of scoring and refereeing the games.

“The football on display was first class, and every team showed great sportsmanship throughout.”
