School children went head to head in a competition to show off their winter sport skills.

Following Sir Tom Finney’s legacy and support for sport for all, the Preston Schools Boccia and New Age Kurling Championships came to a tight conclusion at Moor park High School.

As a truly inclusive event, with teams from special schools competing alongside children from mainstream schools.

Holders of the Sir Tom Finney Trophy from 2013, Sir Tom Finney Community High School, were looking to retain their title.

In the under 14 age group they could only manage third place with Moor Park in second place and Christ the King Catholic Maths & Computing College taking the title.

In the under 16s it was a reversal of results with Christ the King in third place, Hillside Specialist School in second and Sir Tom Finney High School winning this age group.

Dean Brandwood, Preston Council, School Games Organiser said: “With tight results in both age groups the combined positions from both competitions meant the Sir Tom Finney Trophy went to a count back with Christ The King taking the trophy.

“Moor Park’s new sportshall was a great facility and the support of all the teachers to enable children who do not normally get the opportunity to compete outside school had been fantastic.”
