The first-ever Year5/6 mixed futsal tournament laid on by the Hunts School Sports Partnership was won by St John’s CofE Primary School.

The Huntingdon pupils beat off competition from five other schools in the event held at Ernulf Academy, in St Neots, recently.

Matches were played in a round-robin format with champions St John's going on to represent Hunts in the regional finals next year.

Other schools to take part were Bury CofE Primary School, Crosshall Junior School, Spaldwick Community Primary School, Thorndown Primary School and Westfield Junior School.

Futsal is an indoor version of football played between teams made up of five players and using a heavier ball.
