Everton Academy were victorious once again at the under-10s BWCI Mini Soccer Festival in Guernsey, but only after beating Jersey's Grouville Blues on penalties in the shield final.

After a 1-1 draw in normal time, the top-flight juniors won the shoot-out 3-0 as Grouville's Archie Drummond was named player of the tournament.

Jersey's Trinity, meanwhile, beat island rivals St Peter in the final of the plate competition.
