LAST Friday, more than 160 primary school children from 16 schools across the borough of Croydon gathered at Whitgift Sports Club for the second Croydon Primary Schools tag-rugby festival.

The event was organised by the Whitgiftian Junior Rugby Club and the Croydon Partnership, who will redevelop the retail centre of Croydon.

A team of coaches from the Rugby Football Union community rugby team, including England Ladies scrum-half La Toya Mason along with Whitgiftians coaches and volunteers from the Croydon Partnership, held a variety of training sessions for the children.

The schools all entered an exciting and closely fought tag-rugby tournament, with St Peter's School beating Chipstead Valley School 4-3 in the final.

John Burton, Westfield's director of development, said: "The Croydon Partnership is committed to supporting and promoting grass roots projects across the borough.

"The Croydon Schools tag-rugby festival, in its second year is a great example of inclusive, grassroots sports at its best.

"The kids had great fun and learned a lot. The Croydon Partnership was delighted to be supporting an important event like this."
