The first final kicked-off at 11am between the South Wales Under 14 Champions Cambrian & Clydach and the North Wales Champions, Airbus UK.

The Rhondda-based outfit took the lead in the 16th minute as striker Josh Williams scored the first goal of the day. But on the stroke of half-time, the Wingmakers restored parity as Jay Harvey equalised.

It was the same player who then gave the Wingmakers the lead as Harvey scored what proved to be the winner and Airbus were crowned Under 14 Welsh Champions.

They made a fine start with Lee Price netting after just two minutes, but Nomads were level fifteen minutes after the break as Cambrian 'keeper Dylan Price spilt the ball and unfortunately for him it trickled across the line.

There were chances at both ends to take the lead, but the eventual winner came twelve minutes from time with striker Tyler Thorne scoring clinically to beat Connor Hughes in the Nomads goal.
