Isle of Man Tour

Kirkham Grammar Juniors toured a windswept Isle of Man over the weekend playing a packed schedule of netball, hockey, rugby and football fixtures. They had some pleasing wins vs Ramsey Rugby Club, Southern Nomads and The Buchan School. In the first muddy fixture v The Buchan School, Kirkham took the win 4-1 (photo of rugby attached). The girls’ last hockey fixture of the tour finished with an end to end thriller of 3-3.

Many thanks to the Isle of Man clubs for inviting Kirkham Grammar Junior School to take part and to Southern Nomads for their fantastic hospitality.
