Organiser Rupert Gibson, from Agilitas, said: “As usual we ran two competitions, one for small schools and one for larger ones.

“Both competitions where keenly contested and the children had a great day, despite the muddy conditions.

“Our thanks to Spalding Grammar School and Spalding Rugby for hosting us. Special thanks to the 20 sports leaders from Spalding Grammar who did a great job refereeing the matches.”

Schools competed in pools of five or four. Winners and runners-up respectively were Langtoft and Pincbeck East A; Moulton John Harrox and St John’s, Spalding; Ayscoughfee School, Spalding, and Market Deeping’s Linchfield Primary A; Edenham and Tydd St Mary A, and Tydd St Mary B and St Bartholowmew’s B, West Pinchbeck.
