Preston are flying the flag for Lancashire football after a successful time on the pitch.

The city’s Under-11s team took part in the regional qualifier for the English Schools’ seven-a-side tournament at the JMO Sports Park in Skelmersdale and came out winners.

They topped their group, beating Blackburn 2-0 and Pendle 1-0, while they drew 0-0 with Chorley.

In the semi-final, they beat Hyndburn 2-0 with Kian Taylor and Kian Best scoring the goals.

That set them up with a meeting against West Lancs in the final, Finlay Cross-Adair scoring the winner in a 1-0 victory.

Preston will now go on to represent Lancashire in the northern finals.

The Preston squad was: Jack Bashall (St Anthony’s), Rio Cragg (Longsands), Dylan Chauhan (Grimsargh St Michael’s), Kian Taylor (Brookfield), Isaac Mabaya (Sherwood), Josh Dickinson (Fulwood and Cadley), Finlay Cross-Adair (Barnacre Road) and Kian Best (Blessed Sacrament).
