SWADLINCOTE and District Lions Club has celebrated hosting another annual junior football tournament.

Held at the Pingle School in Coronation Street in Swadlincote, six teams took part to compete for the Brian Hudson Memorial Cup.

Lions president Alan Dennis was on hand to present the overall winners from Hilton with the trophy following a penalty shoot-out decider in the final against Linton.

He also presented the player of the tournament trophy, which was won by Holly Harper, as well as trophies to the runners up and semi-finalists.

All six of the school teams that took part in the competition contained a mix of both boys and girls who went head-to-head against one another in a knock-out format.

The final was a very tight game, with much skill shown throughout before Hilton emerged victorious.
