Youngsters at Cedarwood Primary School were the pride of Wembley on Monday as they put on a thrilling performance before the Championship play-off final.
Children from the Kesgrave school’s football team travelled to the capital to represent Ipswich Town in the EFL Kids Cup final against Etwall Primary School, who represented Derby County, which was held before the match between Huddersfield and Reading. Despite putting on a excellent performance in front of the cheering crowds the team were narrowly beaten in the final.
Year 6 football coach Rob Parker said: “We couldn’t have asked for more from them,” he said, “they really gave 100%.”
“They had the most amazing experience.
“Unfortunately the result didn’t go our way, we lost 2-1 but had the better of the play.
“We are very proud of them, football can be a cruel game.
“This was a once in a lifetime opportunity for them and they have really done themselves proud.
“They have been an absolute pleasure to work with. It has been tremendous.”
