Kids are up for the cup

FOOTBALL-mad youngsters from 14 local schools will be battling it out next Thursday (April 14) for the chance to lift the prestigious Bunting Cup.

The long-standing inter-school football tournament will see the teams taking on their local rivals on Matlock’s Cavendish Fields for the chance to claim the crown.

The teams taking part this year are from organisers Castle View School in Matlock, fellow Matlock schools All Saints, St Joseph’s and St Giles’s, Darley Dale Primary, Wirksworth Junior, Ashover Primary, Lea, Bonsall, Winster, Elton, South Darley, Cromford and Matlock Bath schools.

The teams will be split into three different groups, playing each other in a league format with trophies awarded to the winner of each group.

These three teams will then compete against each other for the chance to lift the Bunting Cup and claim bragging rights for their school for the next 12 months.
