Friday, November 3, 2017

Pupils at Hull’s Ainthorpe Primary School, part of the David Ross Education Trust, have been celebrating after winning their first football tournament in this year’s North Hull Sports Network competition.

Ainthorpe’s Year 5/6 football team emerged triumphant in the Cameron Cup, an annual football tournament is held in memory of Cameron Good, who suffered an extreme asthma attack and tragically passed away in January 2015.


The North Hull Sports Network, which aims to increase participation and improving the quality of primary school sport and PE, coordinates a number of competitions and sports leagues for children to compete in throughout the year.


Ten local primary teams took part in the Cameron Cup, including Endike Academy, who encountered Ainthorpe Primary during the semi-finals.


Kate Ranner, Headteacher at Ainthorpe Primary School, said: “Our pupils displayed great sportsmanship throughout the competition and their hard work has really payed off.


“To be crowned champions of the first football tournament within the North Hull Sports Network Competition is a fantastic achievement. I am incredibly proud of their efforts.”
