King's School footballers have won the Macclesfield and District Primary Schools' League and Cup double.

The band of brothers sealed both titles with gritty, hard fought 1 - 0 wins against tough opposition in tense, nail-biting finishes.

In the League, which comprises eight primary schools in the town and its outskirts, King's Juniors beat Prestbury courtesy of a fizzing low shot from clinical striker Zac Farrer running onto a defence splitting pass from playmaker and skipper Ollie Hufton.

After beating Marlborough 6 - 0 in the semi-final of the Reliance Cup, Macclesfield's primary schools' cup competition, with a hat trick from the prolific Farrer, they then took on a resilient Rainow outfit.

This time it was powerhouse, wing man Max Wilson who delivered when it mattered most with a volley right out of the Paul Scholes play book converting a corner on the volley from the edge of the box.

King's Infants and Junior Division Sports Coach Nick Barker said: "They have a fantastic never say die team spirit and are just like a band of brothers."

Pictured on the front two are Callum Richardson, Isaac Todd, Ollie Hufton, Walter Travis and Max Wilson. On the back row are Joe Moores, Christian Smith, Ted Brough, Zac Farrer and Connor Dentith.
