St.Helens Primary Schools Up for the Cup

24 July 2015

Wembley Stadium had nothing on St.Helens, when the Clinkham Woodland Cup returned for its annual feast of football and rugby. Eight local primary schools competed at the event, with Rainford C of E Primary winning the football cup and Bleak Hill Primary School winning the rugby trophy.

The one-day tournament, organised by community group The Friends of Clinkham Wood in conjunction with Steve Moore from St Aidan's Primary School and St.Helens Council's Ranger Service, was held on Thursday 9th July from noon until 4pm at Windermere Playing Field, adjacent to Clinkham Wood.


Trophies made entirely of wood from Clinkham Wood were awarded to the teams by St.Helens Mayor Stephen Glover (pictured). Wooden medals were also presented to the winners and runners-up of both competitions.

The event was supported by environmental regeneration initiative The Mersey Forest, local school donations and money from United Utilities via the St.Helens Landscape Fund.

"This is the fourteenth Woodland Tournament since we first started running the event back in 2001," explained Neil McMahon, Treasurer of Friends of Clinkham Wood. "It's been a great afternoon, and has been brilliant for youngsters from the local area."
