School will represent Shrewsbury Town in the regional finals

Harlescott Junior School will go forward to represent Shrewsbury Town in the regional finals after winning the club's community scheme's Football League Kids Cup for under-11 boys.

They came out on top from the 18 schools which entered the competition at the Shrewsbury Sports Village.  
They competed in six groups with the top team from each qualifying for the semi-finals with eventually Ladygrove, Mereside, Harlescott, Oakmeadow, Redhill and St George's progressing.
It all came down to Harlescott  facing Redhill in a very well spirited final which Harlescott won 2-1 on penalties following a 0-0 draw.
