Students from the David Ross Education Trust’s primary academies competed in a series of netball and football tournaments

Students from Bringhurst Primary School in Leicestershire, part of David Ross Education Trust, have been crowned Primary Cup champions on Tuesday 26 March at Malcolm Arnold Academy in Northampton. The students played a series of netball and football matches against other primary schools within the Trust across the Northamptonshire region.

The Bringhurst footballers won all their group matches apart from a draw with Cedar Road Primary School, whom they eventually beat in the final. Zak, who played in the Bringhurst football team, said: “ The hardest match was against Rockingham which went to a penalty shoot-out but luckily I managed to score the winning penalty!”

Also, Bringhurst netball team managed to win all of their matches. They beat Cedar Road 4-3, having trailed 3-2 with just minutes to go. The final was a very tough game against Newnham Primary School, who led 2-0 at the start, however Bringhurst fought back with two late goals and took the game to extra time. The team finally won after Georgia, who had been injured in the first game, scored the ‘golden goal’.

Andy Usher, Sports Lead at Bringhurst Primary School, said: “We are delighted that all the hard work put in over the last few years has finally led to success. We have some fantastic young athletes at Bringhurst who train exceptionally hard and have a fantastic attitude to sport always aiming to improve”.
