A Liverpool FC team were tournament winners in the disabled event at the International Swiss U16 Cup, held in Ruggell, Liechtenstein last week.

Now in its seventh edition, the competition is held every two or three years for U16 sides from across the continent; the Reds finished second in the main event in 2011, with Jerome Sinclair scooping the best player award.

For this year's tournament, a disabled competition was also added to the programme - with Liverpool facing off against Hoffenheim of Germany and Swiss outfit FC Zurich.

With thousands in attendance, including UN Special Advisor on Sport for Development and Peace, Willi Lemke, and the Alps as a scenic backdrop, it was the travelling Reds who collected the trophy.

Liverpool were praised for their 'brilliant individual class' and 'efficiency as a team', as supporters on the sidelines generated a superb atmosphere with renditions of 'You'll Never Walk Alone'.

The tournament brought a close to the special adventure camps organised by the Football is More foundation, which are designed to heighten inclusion and inspire the best in those with mental or physical disabilities.
