DON’T they look smart?

Youngsters at Brunswick Community Primary School in Woodhouse, Sheffield, looked every inch the pro basketball team when they took part in a finals tournament with schools from across the city.

That’s because they had been kitted out by commercial vehicle supplier Sherwood Truck and Van in Highfield Lane, Handsworth, before taking to the court to shoot some hoops.

Schools co-ordinator Julie Dennison said the mixed team of Year 5 youngsters, aged 10 and 11, did themselves proud, finishing fifth in the competition. She added: “It was excellent that they could compete using the bibs provided. The team played really well.

“For some children these school competitions are the only opportunity they have to take part in sport.

“It helps to raise their self-esteem and confidence.”
