Awsworth Primary School’s young footballers have completed a notable double success by winning both the Eastwood and District Primary School’s championships and the Notts Schools County Cup Final.

Managed by senior teacher Ian Baxter, Awsworth’s U11’s beat rivals Lynncroft (Eastwood) 7-1 with Max Hurdis notching a hat-trick to win the Primary Schools title.

More than 30 schools contested the County Cup tournament, which saw Awsworth record a 3-1 win against Carnarvon Primary in the final to take the Majestic Trophy which the school last won in 2005/6.

Awsworth’s double winning squad was made up of Theo Francis, Billy Wallbank, Connor Jolly, Max Hurdis (captain), Daniel Eardley, Alfie Brownhill, Archie Edwards, Nathaniel Peters and Ellis White.
