After qualifying second in the group stages, Haddenham went through to the semi-final, beating a strong Stanley side 1-0 thanks to a mazy run by Jonathan Pickup, who crossed the ball for Dylan Langley to slot home.

Haddenham unfortunately lost 2-0 in the final. However, they have qualified for the final national stage on May 24th at Aston Villa's training ground, the winners of which will represent England in Brazil for the Danone schools' World cup.

Come on boys, dreams can come true!
