Audenshaw School’s Under 13 Football ‘B’ team have progressed to the semi-final of the Playstation Schools’ Cup.

Following a 0-0 draw at the end of extra time, the squad beat South Hunsley School 3-1 on penalties.

As well as competing on the day, pupils were lucky enough to rub shoulders with Manchester United defender, Chris Smalling, and Soccer Am funnyman, ‘Tubes’.

The 26-year-old visited the school on the back of United’s 3-0 victory against Stoke City on Tuesday evening.

An in-depth article will be featured in next Thursday’s Tameside Reporter.
