Ermine Street Church Academy had a day to remember as they claimed a double success at a county netball competition.

The Alconbury Weald school were at the Hunts School Sports Partnerships-run primary school Bee Netball competition, held at Hinchingbrooke School in Huntingdon.

It was the first time the event had been held since 2019 and saw 85 children from 11 teams compete for the opportunity to represent Huntingdonshire at the county finals.

In the A team category, Ermine were fantastic throughout, eventually pipping Cromwell Academy to the title with, Wyton on the Hill Primary School in third.

The B team competition saw a tight battle with Ermine just getting the better of Brampton Village Primary School and Round House Primary Academy.

It means Ermine and Cromwell will now go forward as Huntingdonshire's representatives.
