Sportsafe UK in partnership with High Life Highlands Active School Coordinators were proud to have sponsored the Lochaber Rugby Club inter schools tag rugby competition on Wednesday 7th May at Lochaber High. Sportsafe UK provided some equipment for the tournament and hats for each student who attended.

 

Approximately 250 pupils, from over 15 primary schools in the Lochaber Area attended the Primary Competition in the morning. The weather was typically Lochaber with frequent heavy showers, but it didn’t dampen the pupil’s enthusiasm and spirit. There were some promising rugby stars showing lots of natural ability and potential as well as great sportsmanship throughout the tournament.  The winners of the P4-5 trophy were Upper Achintore.

In the afternoon it was the turn of the Secondary School pupils.  Approximately80 pupils from all 4 secondary schools took part, playing a more expansive game and providing a fantastic afternoon of rugby.  The final was a close affair between Lochaber ’B’ and Mallaig High ‘A’.  Mallaig ‘A’ beat Lochaber ‘B’ 5-4.

 

 

Sportsafe UK would like to congratulate and thank all that took part including all the students and staff who made this event possible. It was  a fantastic day which Sportsafe UK look forward to supporting next year. Sportsafe are proud to sponsor events that increase interschool competition and brings the younger generations together playing sport.
