The team from Alderman Jacobs Primary School in Whittlesey played on the full-size pitch at London Road on Friday.

Youngster Curtis Simmons said: “The best bit was just playing in the amazing stadium and having fun! I don’t think there was a man of the match, everyone was outstanding.”

At the end of the morning the boys were all given a scouting letter, offering them the opportunity to join the Posh Summer School.
