IN the year of the diamond jubilee it will always pay to have Queen in your title.

And it certainly did for Swinton Queen Primary who etched their name on the Totty Cup for the first time after a thrilling victory over defending champions Dearne Highgate.

Goals from Nathan Walsh, Liam Flannery and Charlie Smith proved enough for Swinton to end Highgate’s hopes of becoming the first school in 15 years to retain the historic trophy.

The two sides went at it hammer and tongs in the first half at Swinton Community School but Queen had enough in the tank to surge clear in the later stages.
