Tranmere Rovers Football Tournament- Round two!

Posted on

On Friday 9th October 2015, 12 Wirral Primary schools will be competing against each other in the Tranmere Rovers football tournament which is being held at Weatherhead High School.

This competition has so far proven to be a huge success with teams who have already taken part doing absolutely brilliantly in delivering team spirit and skills. Jen Morrison, Primary Account Manager for New Directions Education says, ” I have no doubt this week’s games will be equally as good as the ones I watched last week. Having popped out to visit the schools who are taking part, I can definitely feel a sense of healthy competition and fun. It will be interesting to see which teams get through this week, but I will most certainly be cheering them all on.”

Some of the schools kindly provided New Directions Education with a small quote to support their schools and teams involved.
