Stimpson Pupils Lucky Charm for the Saints!

Stimpson Pupils Lucky Charm for the Saints!

On Saturday 27th February a squad of 20 children were offered an amazing opportunity to go onto the pitch at half time during the game between Northampton Saints and Worcester Warriors and participate in a tag rugby demonstration.

This term, as part of their PE lessons, Year 5 children have been taking part in tag rugby sessions, run by Northampton Saints.

We are extremely proud of the children who represented our Academy and our children proved to be a lucky mascot for the Saints rugby score, Northampton Saints 38 – Worcester Warriors 18!

We would like to thank Paul Shields and Connor Fleming from the Saints for providing us with this incredible experience and helping us to build links with the Saints. Everyone, staff, parents and of course the pupils have thoroughly enjoyed working with the Saints and watching them play.

Thank you also to the EMLC Academy Trust for buying special rugby shirts to celebrate the event and to Ms Lewis for organising the trip to the Saints Stadium.
