On the weekend of 22nd January Kirkham Grammar School embarked on a three day sports tour to the Isle of Man. Buchan School on the Isle of Man hosted the event with twenty two visiting children and three teachers from Kirkham Grammar School representing hockey, netball, rugby and football teams.
AM Seafoods Director Scott Merrick’s two daughters represented the school in the girls hockey team in the two matches they played in the tournament. The youngsters both made their father and school very proud in their team’s 5-2 defeat of King William’s College and the 9-0 defeat of a tough Isle Of Man U12 team.
Through its strong links with the Isle of Man AM Seafoods were very keen to be involved in this sports tournament. Sponsored waterproof jackets were provided for the Kirkham Grammar School and Buchan School children to wear throughout the tournament and school life afterwards.
PE Teacher at Kirkham Grammar School Mr Oddie was very pleased with the success of the event and impressed at how well his group looked thanks to AM Seafoods generous sponsorship of their kit.
