The second of this year’s local primary school sports festivals took place at Cromford Meadows and was well supported by local youngsters.

Five schools took part in this tag rugby festival and it was a closely fought competition, all overseen by sports leaders from Anthony Gell School in Wirksworth.

The Anthony Gell leaders kicked off the morning by taking their teams through a good warm-up and stretch, followed by a quick recap on rules and tactics.

The primary school pupils were all exceptionally keen and participated with enthusiasm and drive.

In the final, Bonsall School and one of the teams from Turnditch played extremely well, with Bonsall being victorious with a 4-2 win.

Huge thanks must go to Bill Hallstead for hosting the event and providing top class refereeing from junior members of Matlock RFC.

The teams who entered were Bonsall, two teams from Turnditch, Middleton, Crich Carr and Kirk Ireton.
