FOOTBALLERS from Priory Parkside U9R visited the new Wembley Stadium for a national tournament.

Priory represented the district at the McDonald's football festival earlier this month after winning the Huntingdonshire FA's six-a-side tournament.

The youngsters made their way to the new stadium in a luxury double decker coach, draped in the Priory crest. More than 900 children from across the country attended.

Priory played four games at the tournament, losing just once and managing a 1-0 victory on the Wembley surface itself.

The boys then had the opportunity to make the long climb up the steps to the royal box to collect their medals - and had the opportunity to meet 1966 world cup final hero Sir Geoff Hurst.

Managers Lee Rymer and Danny Keating praised the efforts of their team.
