A football team from a south Norfolk school has won a national cup final.
Langley Senior School's boys' football team went to West Bromwich Albion's stadium, The Hawthorns, to play in the U-15 Small Schools National Cup Final against De La Salle Academy from Liverpool.
After conceding an early goal, the players responded well and by half-time they were on top, beginning to create chances.
The equalising goal came early in the second half, Sol Alidor-Hamilton with a searching switch of play leading to good work from Keyni Mills down the right, cutting back for Ruben Shakpoke to slot home calmly.
