Big Crowds and exciting finishes at Primary School Sports
On Thursday the youngsters from the big schools were in action for their heats. With places at stake in the western final the athletes were prepared to give their all for the glory of their school. There were some very close and exciting finishes particularly in the relays. Schools will be notified of their qualifiers for the finals. Next week it is the turn of the smaller schools to run their heats. Once again we expect large numbers so come early if you want to park in the Friary. Line up starts at 6.15 and the first race will be under way at 6.30. We will not wait for latecomers as we need to start on time to ensure we are finished before dark.
