Lincolnshire County Council celebrated the many school sports teams and their successes at its marquee during the Lincolnshire Show by handing out awards.

Coached by a parent, the Year 5/6 mixed netball team from St Andrew’s Primary School in Leasingham are Sleaford champions, Lincolnshire primary school champions, and lost by a single goal in the East Midlands final against Nottingham Girls’ High School on Saturday.

Two team members now play at a higher level with Holly playing for Lincolnshire netball and Elod playing basketball for Lincolnshire.
