Pupils from two Hyndburn schools have secured places at the prestigious SPAR Lancashire Schools Games finals.
Teams from St Christopher’s High School in Accrington and St Mary’s RC primary school in Oswaldtwistle competed against 18 other schools from the borough and the Ribble Valley and were victorious in the high five netball and girls cricket.
They will join schools at the county finals at Stanley Park in Blackpool on June 30 and will aim to be crowned Lancashire champions in both sports.
