THE Wensleydale School has tasted success at an area football tournament.

Year 10 boys won the annual U15 Hambleton and Richmondshire seven-a-side tournament, organised by BTEC students at Risedale School, Catterick Garrison.

The team beat Bedale, Richmond, Thirsk and Risedale to win the event.

Wensleydale head of PE Lee Wasden said the victory was all the more sweeter because it prevented a clean sweep by Richmond School at this year’s area football competitions and Richmond also beat the U15s in the area 11-a-side cup.
