QPR have been handed an exciting draw ahead of next month's trip to Anfield for the annual Premier League Schools Tournament Finals.

Rangers find themselves in Group D which includes Manchester United, Sunderland and Merseyside pair Everton and Liverpool.

More than 30 schools battled it out for the chance to represent Rangers in this year’s showpiece event - taking place on Thursday 9th May - at two six-a-side competitions organised by QPR in the Community Trust.

Byron Court Primary School from Brent prevailed in the Under-11 mixed tournament while Sacred Heart School from Hammersmith took the honours in the Under-13 girls' competition

Both will don the famous blue n' white hoops in front of the Kop, where they will be treated to the full Barclays Premier League experience as they walk out of the tunnel in club kit to the Barclays Premier League theme music, with each match overseen by a Premier League official.

The draw – made by Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson – applies to the Under-11 mixed teams and the Under-13 girls’ teams.

Now in its eighth year, the Premier League Schools Tournament aims to increase participation and the numbers of teams and players has grown every season. Each of the 20 clubs stage their own competition to select a school to represent them in the finals.

Over two separate days in the capital, the Trust welcomed over double the number of children who competed in their leg last year as schools came from all six boroughs within which the Trust operate.
