The side were unbeaten in 19 matches on their run to the final, which was watched by parents and teachers who travelled to the capital to cheer on the youngsters aged between nine and 11.
The final was played before the League Two play-off final between Cheltenham and Crewe, and hundreds of supporters were filling the stadium as the Stanbridge stars took to the hallowed turf.
The team, who represented Bristol Rovers in the competition, was coached by teacher James Baker and parent Mr Sloper.
