“I would like to give special praise to my boys for all their focus and determination. I couldn’t be more proud of them, it really is a pleasure to be their coach.”

There was also praise for Highbury Wolves, who played their part in a gripping final. “We are all really proud of the boys, they have come a long way due to their commitment and teamwork,” said their coach Dave Scrafton.

The thrilling tournament, which was held at the pitches at Market Road in Islington on January 26, also saw European FA finish third after edging out Regent’s Park on penalties in their play-off.
