Thomas Telford (Shropshire CSFA) 3 Parmiter's (Hertfordshire CSFA) 1
On the hot and sunny afternoon of Wednesday 10 May 2006, in front of a large and enthusiastic crowd, two excellent teams played out a match at Molinuex that was closer than the score indicates. Jake Jervis gave Thomas Telford the lead in the first minute before Josh Jones equalised with a header.

U18 SCHOOLS' TROPHY FINAL
Monkseaton (Northumberland CSFA) 2 West London Academy (Middlesex CSFA) 1
This final was held at Notts County Football Club on Monday 8 May 2006. The match proved to be a thriller. Lee Novak put the team from the North ahead after 15 minutes following a good passing move with Alan Patterson. 20 minutes later came a fine equaliser after David Campbell was put clear on goal only to see his shot hit the underside of the bar and bounce in of the keeper's heel.

U18 COLLEGES' TROPHY FINAL
U18 Colleges Trophy Winners -
Wilberforce (Humberside CSFA) 1 Kingston (Surrey CSFA) 0
The National Final took place at Boston United Football Club on Wednesday 3 May 2006 and was a very successful occasion. The club may be in a lower division but their hospitality was Premier League. The game was refereed by Des Coulson, from the Football League Assistant Referees List. The match was a somewhat dull and tedious contest until a "free-for-all" half-way through the second half resulted in referee Coulson red-carding one of the Wilberforce players. This seemed to spur on the Hull team because a few minutes later a certain Robbie Fowler scored what proved to be the decisive goal with a header.
Wilberforce: Adam Smith, David Suddaby, Lewis Barley, Lee Beach, Ben Etherington, Ryan McAllister, Alex Davidson, Scott Phillips, Alex Reverley, Andrew Kaye, Jordan Pullen, Robert Hunter, Robert Abrahamson, Robert Fowler, Alex Richmond, Andrew Coverdale
Kingston: Rodney Chiweshe, Elliot Blake, Tim Pitt, Chris Robinson, Daniel Fisher, Robin Shroot, John Coleman, Tom Windsor, Craig Masham, Jordan Kiffin, Harry Draper, Dean Thomas, Daniel Gurney, Daniel Meggie, Ronnie Vincent, Jermaine McGlashan, Nick White
