YOUNG footballers from Mayfield Primary School have been battling for eight weeks for the title of indoor 5-a-side champions.

The Winter Indoor 5-a-side Championship was held at Mayfield Primary School on Mondays after school over the last eight weeks.

Four teams - the Reds, captained by Thomas Duffield; Blues, captained by Liam Devine; Greens, captained by Jed Morrison; and Yellows, captained by Jack Smith - played 48 matches each, with a total of 138 goals scored.

The Greens scored the most with a total of 41 goals, but it was the Reds - who conceded the least goals (24) - who ended up as the winning team.

The winning team consisted of Thomas Duffield (C) Morgan Rutherford, Jack Burrows, Stephen Wyse, and Nathen Dempster.
