About 200 pupils from seven primary schools took part in a mega sports day competition on Friday.

Budding young athletes, tennis players and hockey stars tested themselves against their Fenland rivals during the Sainsbury’s School Games event, which was held at Sir Harry Smith Community College in Whittlesey.

The winners have progressed to a county competition on June 27 in St Ives.

The schools involved were Burrowmoor and All Saints Primary Schools from March, Park Lane Primary School from Whittlesey, Glebelands and Kingsfield Schools from Chatteris, Coates Primary School and Elm Primary School.

Di Baker, partnership manager and school games organiser for the Witchford School Sports Partnership, said: “We want to get more children involved in sport and taking part in competitions.
