The 219 pupils from Kirkfieldbank, St. Marys, Robert Owen, New Lanark and Underbank Primary Schools were part of the Tesco Bank Football Challenge.

St Mary’s Primary School teacher Fiona Smyth said: “The football festival has allowed the pupils to put their skills to the test and participate in much needed team events for pupils of this age.”
