"It has been great to work alongside Blessed William Howard Catholic School to develop the first annual BWH Cup event. I was thrilled that so many schools and young people participated with many more on a waiting list to join. The sportsmanship was outstanding throughout and all games played in a fantastic competitive spirit. A huge thanks to Stafford Netball Club, Stafford Rangers FC and also English Schools Football Association for their support in the event. Everyone is already looking forward to the event in 2020." commented Mr Steve Glover of Stafford Sports and Performance Academy.
Well done also to BWH 6th Form volunteers who raised £60 for Mary's Meals at the tournament selling refreshments.
