A DEVIZES school team is celebrating getting to the county girls' football finals.

The team from Southbroom St James beat opposition from schools in the Devizes and Chippenham area when they competed in the Mid Wiltshire Schools area finals last Wednesday at the Stanley Park sports ground in Chippenham.

It was the first time the Nursteed Road school had entered a girls team into the tournament, and they were extremely pleased with their success.

The team have spent all week training hard ready for the finals, which are due to be held yesterday, also at the Stanley Park sports ground.

The team were helped to the finals by local opticians Haine and Smith, who recently provided them with new football kit.
