PUPILS from Little Downham Feoffees marked another year of sporting success by making it through to the regional finals of a tag rugby competition.

After winning the district and county competitions, the 12 pupils from Years 5 and 6 were invited to join just a handful of schools from across the county at Rugby School in Warwickshire to compete for a spot in the national finals.

A valiant performance from the team, wearing new kit sponsored by Pymoor-based Corkers Crisps, saw them finish in the top 10 of teams.

Coaches Mike Breeden and Nigel Jones said that they were extremely proud of the team, who had performed superbly at every level of the competition.
