It was a family affair at the Brighton and Hove Schools' Football Association Cup finals.

Thirteen-year-old Jack Pook collected the under-13s trophy from his grandad Roy after his Dorothy Stringer side pipped Portslade Community College 4-2 on penalties at Southwick.

Roy donated the silverware 23 years ago after Jack's father and his son, Alan, had won at under-13s.

Alan said: "It was a very special occasion, quite emotional. Jack wasn't the captain, but because it was the Roy Pook Trophy and my dad was presenting it, the rest of the team let him go up to receive it. Jack was delighted to do it. It is something he will remember forever.

"It was so appropriate as I helped Dorothy Stringer win the under-13s Cup and my dad supported me with my football when I was Jack's age."

Alan coached the winning team with manager Andy Marchant.

Dorothy Stringer pipped Portslade Community College 4-2 on penalties after it finished 1-1 following normal and extra time.

A Lloyd Skinner header put PCC 1-0 up. Sonny Cobbs equalised with a 25-yard left-footed free-kick five minutes after the interval..

Penalties from Cobbs, Sam Gargon, Jurell Hughes and Jamie Brotherton eventually sealed the triumph.

Cardinal Newman beat Varndean 1-0 in the under-12s final and dedicated the victory to stricken striker Josh Rozario.

Rozario was injured in an under-13s schools tour in Spain after his goals had guided the younger age group into the final.

Manager Paul Miller said: "Josh broke his collar bone and the lads wanted to win the final for him. It was a big incentive for them. Josh was our main forward."

Miller also revealed another reason why his side were fired up. He said: "The side started the season by losing our first game 12-0. The players wanted to show they were better than that. They were also second in the Brighton and Hove Schools League."

Defender Chris Bennett-Grant headed the winner from a Robert O'Toole corner.

Miller said:" Chris was our man-of-the-match."

It was Miller's fourth success at under-12s.

Adam Hardwick, Josh Kelly, Luke Bonwick, Sam Whiting and Russell Kennard were on target in the shoot-out.
