Ormskirk Advertiser - - Martin Mere -

PUPILS from Tar­leton Holy Trin­ity CE Pri­mary School are cel­e­brat­ing af­ter clinch­ing a place at the largest youth sport­ing event in Lan­cashire, fol­low­ing vic­tory in a tri golf com­pe­ti­tion.

The school bat­tled it out against five other schools and will now rep­re­sent West Lan­cashire at the Spar Lan­cashire School Games county fi­nals where they will com­pete against teams from 14 other Lan­cashire dis­tricts in a bid to be crowned county cham­pi­ons in tri golf.

Chris Hart, who is the school games or­gan­iser for West Lan­cashire and ar­ranged the event, said: “The tri golf com­pe­ti­tion was a great suc­cess. All the chil­dren in­volved seemed to re­ally en­joy them­selves.

“I look for­ward to see­ing the win­ning team at the county fi­nals.”

Now in its eleventh year, the SPAR Lan­cashire School Games is made up of two main events pro­vid­ing all chil­dren in Lan­cashire with the op­por­tu­nity to take part in com­pet­i­tive sport.

Schools from all around the county are now com­pet­ing for a place at the county fi­nals due to be held at Black­pool’s Stan­ley Park on July 4, where more than 2,000 chil­dren are ex­pected to bat­tle it out for glory.

Sports in­clud­ing gym­nas­tics, foot­ball and ath­let­ics, as well as two new ad­di­tions to the 2017 lineup – mixed cricket and touch rugby – will be con­tested by pupils from 15 Lan­cashire dis­tricts.

In ad­di­tion, the Dis­abil­ity Swim­ming Gala took place in March at Lan­caster’s Salt Ayre Leisure Cen­tre.

The Spar Lan­cashire School Games is or­gan­ised by the Lan­cashire Sport Part­ner­ship and de­liv­ered by the county’s school games organisers.

James Hall & Co Ltd, the Spar dis­trib­u­tor for the north of Eng­land, is spon­sor­ing the event for the eleventh year run­ning.
