Active youngsters from a school in Ascot taught their mums a lesson during an annual football tournament.
The competition saw a team of u8 footballers at Papplewick School, in Windsor Road, battle it out in a round-robin competition.
Players were split into three teams with each young footballer matching up against his parent for at least one game.
The mums started strongest and bagged some early goals but the boys soon came roaring back and eventually outscored them by 14 goals to eight.
Papplewick headteacher Tom Bunbury said: “A huge thanks goes out to all the mums who made the day and indeed made their son’s day.
“It was perhaps the pre-match drinks with Mr and Mrs Bunbury that proved fatal for the mothers this year.”
He also thanked the school’s football coach, John Nutter, for organising the event.
The competition took place on Tuesday, October 20.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
