Winners of the Primary Cup North

Wold Academy are celebrating after being crowned champions of the David Ross Foundation’s Primary Cup North.

Competing against eight other primary academies from across the David Ross Education Trust (DRET), the pupils went head to head in football and netball matches in the hope of bringing home the trophy.

Football freestyler, Billy Fincham, attended the event and impressed crowds during the opening ceremony.

It was a close competition but Wold Academy won enough matches in both sports to become overall champions.

Mina Thomson, a pupil at Wold Academy, said: It was fun and exciting to play against other schools. We were all supporting each other and applauding everyone. We were really shocked but excited that we won.”

Mrs Lewis, Associate Principal, commented: “This is a fantastic result for our academy and I am incredibly proud of our pupils.

“Congratulations to all the children that took part. I hope we can continue our success in the Summer Cup at the end of the year.” 

Alex Green, Sports Enrichment Co-ordinator for the David Ross Education Trust, said: “Sport not only encourages teamwork, but teaches children about winning and losing, commitment and making lasting friendships. That is why events like this are so important. Congratulations to our winners, everyone who took part should feel extremely proud.”
