More than 200 students took part in a combined Netball and Football Tournament organised by Tollbar Multi Academy Trust.

It was the second time that all four Secondary Academies - Tollbar, Cleethorpes, Louth and Somercotes - have played against each other and teachers reported "fantastic camaraderie" throughout the event.

Louth Academy students performed extremely well, taking the runners-up position in the Year 7 Netball Tournament, which was won by Tollbar Academy.

Darren Huart, Curriculum Leader for P.E. at Louth Academy, said: "There were some brilliant performances from students at Louth Academy, with many students competing in a tournament of this size for the first time. Louth Year 7 Netball Team is beginning to show a lot of promise, narrowly missing out on top spot to finish second behind the Tollbar Year 7 team. The Year 8 Netball Team finished in 4th, with vastly improving performances throughout the evening.

"The Year 7 and Year 8 Football Teams finished in joint 4th position after playing out a draw against each other in the game between the two sides. The standout moment of the Football Tournament was a brilliant long-range effort, which saw the Year 7 Football Team beat Tollbar 1-0."

The Year 8 Netball Competition was won by Tollbar Academy. The Year 7/8 combined Football Tournament was won by Cleethorpes Academy with Tollbar and Somercotes Academies in second and third place respectively.

The tournament took place at Tollbar Academy. Organiser Amy Gowshall, Curriculum Leader for P.E. at Tollbar Academy, said: "The teamwork and camaraderie on show were second to none, but the resounding highlight of both the Football and the Netball Competitions was that of sportsmanship and fair play. All of the tournaments were played in a great spirit and the students really enjoyed taking part."
