The overall winning school today will progress to the grand final at Wembley in May.
Best of luck Croft
Croft Primary School representing Mansfield Town FC started off the competition against Morecambe.
Mansfield looked to play with some slick passing styles but came unstuck with a 2-0 defeat. There was a string of good saves by the Stags keeper or the scoreline could have been more.
So after a 2-0 defeat against Morecambe, Mansfield replied with a 1-0 victory over local rivals Notts County.
Game 3 was against Carlisle but the Stags lost out 3-1 but it was a gallant effort.
What a way to finish the group. An impressive 5-1 victory against Lincoln but unfortunately the Wembley dream is over as Carlisle got the result they needed to go through along with Morecambe.
Morecambe emerged victorious as Regional Champions and will now enjoy the occasion at Wembley for the EFL Kids Cup Grand Final
