The event, held at Newport school, proved to be an exciting one with many of the teams having close matches going down to the final bowl of the game.

After a competitive event, Dame Bradbury’s School in Saffron Walden came out winners, followed by: 2nd – Manuden; 3rd - Dunmow St Mary’s; 4th – Howe Green / Henham & Ugley; 6th – RA Butler; 7th – Great chesterford; 8th – St Mary’s Stansted; 9th Elsenham; 10th Rickling A.

The event kicked off a remarkable week of sport for Uttlesford’s schools – with the USSP working with over 450 children.

On Monday the partnership ran its first-ever Quad kids athletics event which saw 180 children from 12 different schools across Uttlesford taking part.

The following day Newport schools held their kwik cricket final at Saffron Walden cricket ground, and on Friday Dame Bradbury’s hosted the final of the USSP tennis competition.

Sports Games organiser Jackie Coleman said: “The schools in the area have a great deal of sport and opportunity to compete as a result of the thriving partnership and the support of the schools who are organising teams to take part.”
