Aspiring young footballers from schools across Stamford competed against each other during a day of matches aimed at instilling the love of sport among pupils.

Half a dozen teams took part in the fixtures as part of the Primary Schools Football Festival, held at Malcolm Sargent Primary School, in Empingham Road, Stamford.

Teams of Year 5 and Year 6 pupils from Uffington, St Augustine’s, St Gilbert’s, The Bythams and the Bluecoat School primaries, played a series of matches. The team from Malcolm Sargent emerged overall winners with The Bythams team a close second.

School Sports Co-ordinator Anne Bennett said: “Despite the cold and windy conditions, which made scoring difficult, the teams showed great effort and determination in every match.”

Organised as one of the Primary Festivals, the event aims to encourage youngsters to take part in activities and the chance to compete against other schools.
