Boldmere Primary A team win 2017 Rotary Football Competition

Pupils from Boldmere Primary School A team, in Sutton Coldfield, won the recent football competition organised by the Rotary Club of Wylde Green for local schools on the 3G pitch at Sutton Coldfield Town Football Club.


Now in its sixth year, the competition for up to Year 6 pupils attracted 120 players from 8 local schools making up 15 teams.

The final was decided when Boldmere A beat Little Sutton A 2-1. 

Everyone taking part received a medal. The runners up also had a trophy and the ultimate winners received a special shield that they will hold for the coming year.

Organiser of the competition, Nick Thurston, commented:

“I’d like to express my thanks to the students from BMET/Sutton College Football Foundation who acted as referees, pitch runners and provided other administrative help on the night. 

“Rotary is all about working with communities. We’ve really enjoyed organising this event that brought together school pupils, teachers. parents, students, Rotarians and the local semi-pro football club, for healthy competition and community spirit.”
