Sunshine, sports and schools!
The weather could not have been better for the annual ‘Paula Statham Memorial Festival’ at Litchard Primary School on Friday. The sun was shining, the sky was blue, and schools from across Bridgend came together to take part in an afternoon of football and netball.
Jon and Adam from Apollo Bridgend spent the day refereeing football matches on pitch 3, and were blown away by the talent demonstrated by all pupils.
‘I thoroughly enjoyed spending time on the pitch. It was fantastic to see so many schools taking part in the event, and the determination shown by all players was brilliant!’
Jon was just as impressed, adding:
‘The way the pupils conducted themselves throughout the tournament was very impressive. All were polite to their rival teams while giving 100% on the pitch. We love being part of this event, and we’re already looking forward to next year!’
27 teams took part in the event and we’d like to say a huge congratulations to every player. We hope you enjoyed competing as much as we enjoyed helping out!
