BUDDING footballer Jack Grisdale netted himself a trophy in a penalty shoot-out at Bedlington Terriers.
The Longhoughton Rangers under-8s player came through a sudden-death contest to win the kids’ competition, held at half-time during the Terriers’ FA Cup qualifier against Whickham FC on August 20.
The tournament was part of an open day organised by the club, who beat Whickham 1-0 on the day to reach the FA Cup’s preliminary round.
Jack, eight, overcame several older players to bag the top spot.
And the youngster also got to meet the Terriers’ billionaire owner Bob Rich, who presented him with the trophy and a Terriers football shirt.
The American bought the club last year after tracing his family back to the Bedlington area.
“He was chuffed to bits,” said dad Peter, who is also the Longhoughton Under 8 team coach.
