Footballers from Sir John Gleed School in Spalding have been launched into the premiership spotlight.

The Key Stage 3 six-a-side football team played at Carrow Road, home of Sky Bet Championship Norwich City, before their fixture with Birmingham City.

The boys are pictured during and at the end of the game, as well as at school receiving a certificate sent by Norwich City to commemorate their appearance.

Every student was also awarded a certificate, signed by Norwich City captain and Scottish international Russell Martin.

PE teacher Ian Billinghurst, head of Year 9, said: “After the students played on the pitch they were accompanied by some peers to watch the Norwich City vs Birmingham City Sky Bet Championship fixture.

“They were a credit to the school and were commended on their ability, application and sportsmanship from Norwich City officials.”
