Wooler youngsters take memorial trophy

The annual Sean Simpson Memorial Trophy contested between teams of boys and girls from Belford First School and Wooler First School resulted in a win for hosts Wooler.

The tournament rotates between both venues in memory of local football coach Sean Simpson, who died unexpectedly eight years ago.

It helps bring local children and schools together, according to Wooler head teacher, Mrs Currans.

“The tournament is a fitting way to remember Sean and celebrate his work with children at both schools,” she said.
