The finals of The Adam Heslop National League Trust Cup take place on Friday when the last four schools compete for the trophy.

The four schools left in the boys competition are Bradshaw, Copley, St. Chad’s and St. Joseph’s (Hx).  Whilst Beech Hill, Copley, Parkinson Lane & Walsden are the remaining schools in the girls competition.

The tournament, supported by funding from the National League Trust, community sponsors RSA and FC Halifax Town is now in its 5th year and open to primary schools, specifically boys and girls in the year 6 age group.

Working in partnership with Schools Games Organiser, Colin Crowther of Brooksbank School, over 30 school teams have taken part over recent months.  The competition provides the opportunity for budding football stars to play the exciting game of Futsal, a fast-moving 5-a-side game of South American origin, whilst also engaging with FC Halifax Town.

The winners of the boys and girls competitions will go forward to a regional tournament to represent both their school and FC Halifax Town. With further opportunities to play in a northern final and at Wembley, should they win.

Last Years winners All Saints (Boys) and St. Chad’s (Girls) are both not involved in the finals on Friday so there may be a new name going onto the Cup.

The man himself (Adam Heslop) has been in attendance at all the qualifiers and will no doubt be in attendance to see who wins the Cup that bears his name.

The competition takes place at North Bridge Leisure Centre on Friday 7th December and starts at 10am.
