The football team at Field Lane Primary School are now sporting a new strip thanks to the school’s fundraising efforts.

With the help of the PTA, enough funds have been raised to buy the school their first official kit.

PE coordinator Fiona Moore said: “The blue colour was chosen to match our school uniform colours. We liked the diagonal line as they are very distinctive.

“The team have played matches this half term against Woodhouse, Carr Green, St Joseph’s and other schools in Brighouse.

“We are hoping that the new football kit will change our luck and help us to win some games. “The team includes pupils from Year four, five and six. Boys and girls play on our team and we practise on Friday lunchtime with a sports coach and are currently working with a semi professional footballer.”
