FOOT­BALLERS from pri­mary schools around the town took part in a com­pe­ti­tion at Hollinhey Pri­mary School.

Teams played in the 47th Macclesfield Pri­mary Soc­cer Sev­ens, which is spon­sored by Re­liance Net­works.

John Askey, Macclesfield Town Foot­ball Club manager, helped present the awards.

Kings School ju­niors and Rainow girls won their com­pe­ti­tions and pupils took home tro­phies in penalty shoot-out com­pe­ti­tions.

Sean Good­ing from Re­liance Net­works, along­side dis­trict ref­er­ees Mark Lee and Gre­gory Ar­mitt also awarded Player of the Day Awards.

Sean said: “Both matches to de­cide third place were played as though the teams had reached the fi­nal with play­ers and par­ents caught up in the emo­tion of the com­pe­ti­tion. The fi­nals were fought out in a fan­tas­tic spirit.”

Caro­line Massey, com­pe­ti­tion or­gan­iser and deputy head­teacher at Hollinhey, said: “This long-run­ning com­pe­ti­tion show­cased the best in pri­mary school foot­ball in an idyl­lic set­ting. Fam­ily and friends sup­ported the fi­nal­ists in a good-na­tured yet com­pet­i­tive man­ner. Con­grat­u­la­tions to the play­ers for such a fine demon­stra­tion of skills, team­work and de­ter­mi­na­tion and a spe­cial men­tion to the teach­ers and coaches for giv­ing pupils a great op­por­tu­nity.”
