Goodmayes Primary School have been running Saturday morning football clubs for pupils in the second part of the summer term.

And during the recent European Championships, they held their own tournaments for two age categories - with 'England' teams winning both.

Sports coach Nicky Skinner said: "The clubs have been a great success and the children have enjoyed them immensely!"
