Football Festival as Popular as Ever
Boys' Division Community

Once again, the Bolton School Football Festival, which runs over two days after school, has proved massively popular with local primary school girls and boys. 

Match Day One saw hundreds of Year 3 and Year 4 pupils from local schools play some great football on the Bolton School Levels. The mini-games were played in a great spirit and were refereed by Boys’ Division pupils from Years 7, 8 and 10.

Day Two, which enjoyed even better weather, saw hundreds of Year 5 and 6 pupils compete in three fiercely contested competitions. Again, the matches were refereed by older Bolton School pupils and local referees provided by Bolton PE and School Sport. The B competition was won by St Brendan’s who overcame Egerton CPS 2-0 in the final and the A competition was won by Bolton School Junior Boys who beat St Andrew’s from Over Hulton 1-0 in a very tight match. The girls’ competition saw Eatock run out 3-1 winners over St Thomas Chequerbent.

Over the course of the two days, 140 teams competed.
