Academy hosts Sunderland AFC U11 Mixed Qualifiers

IMG_1427North Durham Academy welcomed 12 primary schools from Durham to compete in the qualifiers for the Premier League Schools Tournament this morning.

Asides from the sub-zero temperatures the tournament went extremely well and the teams from each school gave it their all.

Tanfield primary school were the winning team and will now compete in the regional tournament, against the winners of the other qualifiers taking part this month.

The winner of the regional tournament will then go on to represent Sunderland in the Premier League School Tournament at Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge later this year.

We wish Tanfield the best of luck and hope they progress to the Nationals at Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Well done to all the teams that took part !!
