Hundreds of children enjoy tag rugby in the sunshine

 

Hundreds of children battled it out in a tag rugby competition in Slough. It took place at Slough Rugby Club in Upton Court Road yesterday.

A total of 280 pupils in 25 teams from 19 schools competed in two age groups - year 3 and 4 and year 5 and 6.

In the younger age group, Lynch Hill School proved victorious with Godolphin Junior in second.

Claycots Primary took the honours in the year 5 and 6 competition with Castleview Primary the runner-up.

Laura Goodall, School Games organiser, said: "We have had 280 children playing tag rugby in the sunshine and enjoying every minute."

Sports leaders from Beechwood School and Slough Grammar School acted as referees.

The top two teams from each age group will represent the Slough School Sport Network at the Berkshire School Games county event at Bradfield College later this month.
