In the football tournament, the winners of the P1-3 category were Maud A, with Longside runners-up. P1-3 player of the tournament was Ethan Mitchell from Longside.

The P4/5 winners were Maud A who pipped Kininmonth in the final, with Nathan Peden from Maud the pick fo the players.

Methlick won the P6/7 category, Maud A were runners up and the player of the tournament was Craig Taylor from Methlick.

Event organiser Dianne McLean said: “We have been organising the fun day for the last few months and we’re delighted with the turnout.

“We would like to thank everybody who has entered teams for the football and netball tournaments.

“And we would also like to thank the people who helped us to set up on the day and to everyone who has made today such a success.

Mrs Sue Baxter, who is a class teacher at Maud School, added: “Dianne has done a great job. She has put in so much hard work to make this such a fantastic event”.
