The West Cornwall Schools' U13s team will be out to make Cornwall football history when they take on Liverpool U13s in the final of the  English Schools' Football Association's  Boys' Inter Association Trophy at Hereford United's Edgar Street ground on Wednesday.

It is the furthest a team from the county has ever got  in an ESFA competition and they have had to come through seven rounds to reach the final.

Manager Kevin Lawrence is hoping that plenty of Cornish footballs fans can make the trip for the game, which kicks off at 4pm and will be played to a finish wwth extra time and penalties is needed.

He said: "It will be great to have support at the game as the boys embark on Cornish football history and hopefully get the result they wish for.

But either  way, they are winners in my eyes.  Spread the word and be a 12th man/woman for the boys on their big day."

Squad: William Trew (Truro School), Oliver Walker (Richard Lander), Oliver Pritchard (Richard Lander), Adam Dower (Richard Lander), Finn Robinson (Penryn College), Finn Cross (Penryn College), Luke Jephcott (Penryn College), Joel Allen (Penryn College), Joshua Otto (capt.
