Budding NFL FLAG Football Players Brave Challenging Conditions

Over 10o children from nine Huntingdonshire Primary Schools braved the challenging weather conditions to showcase their NFL FLAG Football skills at a practice festival.

The event which took place on Tuesday 12th March at St Neots Town Football Club gave Year 5 and 6 children the opportunity to practice the FLAG skills, knowledge and understanding of the game, that they have been learning within their school. The format provided each school with a schedule of friendly matches against other local schools.

Well done to all schools that attended, the children tackled the weather with great enthusiasm.


  1. Brampton Village Primary School
  2. Bury ComE Primary School
  3. Cromwell Academy
  4. Houghton Primary School
  5. Little Paxton Primary School
  6. St Helen’s Primary School
  7. Warboys Primary Academy
  8. Westfield Junior School
  9. Winhills Primary Academy

The event was supported by Sports Leaders from Hinchingbrooke School who refereed the friendly matches, putting into practice their officiating skills developed earlier in the term with the NFL UK Team. Huge thank you to Toshane from the team for supporting the leaders throughout the festival.

Next up is the NFL FLAG Regional Final scheduled for Friday 17th May at One Leisure St Ives Outdoor Centre.
