Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Panto Time -

The Premier League tro­phy made a rare ap­pear­ance at at Kingsnorth Pri­mary School in Church Hill on Fri­day, af­ter a foot­ball-mad care­taker won a com­pe­ti­tion.

Chil­dren were able to have their photo taken with the sil­ver­ware, which was lifted by Chelsea for the fifth time last sea­son.

Pupils were not al­lowed to touch the tro­phy, but did take part in PE ses­sions led by coaches from Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur

The school’s Kat McNeil said: “It was the proper, price­less one. We thought it would be a replica, but it was the real thing and it was brought in by body­guards at about 7.30am.

“Our care­taker, Richard Everett, en­tered a com­pe­ti­tion to get it here and we were one of only 20 schools in the coun­try to get the chance to see it.

“It took a long time for ev­ery class to have their photo with it as we have 428 chil­dren, but it was a great morn­ing and the chil­dren were al­lowed to wear their foot­ball kits.”
