>> RICHARD: Well, this is the Premier League Schools tournament.
It's our 11th, we started in 2006. And it's a brilliant event, culminating here in the finals.
>> LEIGHTON: I was involved a couple of weeks ago and meeting some of the lads who were gonna play today, and promised the lads when they come up to Finch Farm, like if I was around, I'd come down and take in a bit of the action.
>> RICHARD: 1,760 schools started here. And there's 14,000 people who have taken part.
They work, because they capture the imagination.
Some of the teams, I know the Swansea team have come on this, on the first team bus, all the way up from Swansea. This is an experience they'll never forget.
>> GIRL NO.1: I'm really excited to be here. I didn't expect that we could get here. But I'm happy that we're here.
>> GIRL NO.2: It's a great experience. You might not win, but you've learned so much.
>> LEIGHTON: It's always a good feeling, when you, you can come out and be involved in something that, you know, either helps somebody or brings a smile to somebody's face. It's a great feeling.
It's one of the biggest pleasures really in being a footballer.
