The Preston Schools’ cup finals were held at Deepdale over three days.

Before each game there was a poignant moment as the teams held a minute’s applause in memory of Dick Clegg, who passed away in March.

Mr Clegg had organised the finals for a number of years and was secretary of the Preston Schools’ FA.

The finals were the last matches played on the Deepdale turf before its summer renovation, and there were good crowds for them all.

Our Lady’s RC High School beat Fulwood Academy 3-1 to lift the Mick Baxter Trophy Under-12s trophy.

There was more joy for Our Lady’s as their Under-14s girls team won 4-3 against Broughton in the Junior Guild final.

Corpus Christi boys turned on the style and were 6-1 winners over Archbishop Temple in the Under-13s Jack May trophy.

In the Under-14s Dawson Cup, Archbishop Temple beat Longridge 2-0.

Broughton were 4-3 victors against Corpus Christi in the Under-15s Ord/Hargreaves Cup, with Corpus Christi winning the Under-16s Lucas Shield thanks to a 1-0 victory over Our Lady’s.

The Under-16s Girls’ Guild Cup saw St Cecilia’s beat Broughton 6-2.
