Buxton Junior School’s year five/six girls’ football team recently celebrated being crowned county champions.

Two wins and two draws in their group matches saw the Mosley Road school qualify for the knockout stage of the county finals, before seeing off Glebe Junior School and Hilton Primary School, the latter on penalties, to take the title.

Sarah Bentley, PE and sports co-ordinator, said: “The whole team played excellently and were successful because they played so well as a team.”
