With the World Cup just around the corner, South View Primary School in Crowland was full of football fever.

Give It Some Fizz Fitness, Sports and Education organised a fun football tournament at the school where primary aged children from Years 3 and 4 had the chance to put their skills into practice.

The tournament was open to local school children aged between seven and nine years and saw youngsters go head to head in a closely fought competition.

Organiser Holly Barrett said: "All the teams were able to play each other twice in order to give everyone an opportunity to play as much football as possible.

"There were some stunning performances and fabulous goals - notably an overhead bicycle kick from South View Primary player Tyler - and a goal from the half-way line from Linchfield Primary School in Deeping St James.

"Each team scored plenty of goals and the games were very much enjoyed by the spectators.

"When the points were tallied and goal differences calculated the eventual trophy winners were Linchfield Primary School, closely followed by South View Primary and St. Thomas More Primary School from Peterborough in third.

"Well done to all the players involved in the tournament."
