St James' School Football Team
ST JAMES' Catholic Primary School, Ashurst, Skelmersdale were one of eight teams that battled out a set of league matches through January every Tuesday night on the astro-turf pitches at Glenburn High School. All the other schools that took part came from all corners of Skelmersdale. St James' played 14 matches in total and finished in top place.
Head Teacher Dave Iliff said: “The quality of all the matches was very high with some tremendous skill on display by some individuals. There is a lot of talent in the town. St James' were involved in some very close matches having to be at their very best and at times, we did ride our luck.
“It was delight to watch some slick passing, long distant shooting and top goalkeeping, especially when each week the players had to contend with temperatures close to freezing and at times in driving rain. The parental support for all the teams each night was fantastic.”
