The Greneway Year 5/6 squad have also been maintaining momentum an 8-0 win in the Wix County Cup, one of the oldest football competitions in the country, with the side now awaiting their quarter-final opponents. The team also finished an impressive third place in the county seven-a-side finals.

Rob Dowler, head of PE told CrowSport: “As each round of the competitions go on the games are getting tougher. However the pupils are responding really well, showing great character and upping their performances each time.”

December will be another busy month for Greneway School teams with the next round of the national and county cup competitions for the boys and the U12 girl’s national cup competition starting with an away trip to Longsands Academy in Huntingdon.
