MARKINCH ‘A’ won the first Fun 5z Netball Festival in Glenrothes on Friday.

Fife Institute was the venue for the event, organised by Netball Scotland, which gave 120 children from 12 primary schools the opportunity to learn and practice skills and compete in a tournament.

Markinch teacher, Mrs Dunion, said : “The group have played together since August and I am very proud of their performance today.

“They have improved their skills, had great fun and we all have had a really enjoyable day.”

Organisers thanked the HND sports coaching students from Adam Smith College who planned and managed the successful running of the event.

All the children were given the chance to join the new Glenrothes Netball Club.
