Retford trio win PL Primary Stars prize

Club Doncaster Foundation partner schools from across the borough have been busy writing poems as part of the Premier League primary stars writing competition.

The regional competition hosted by CDF challenged students to write about resilience, with the chance to win complimentary Doncaster Rovers tickets, signed merchandise and publication in the match day programme.

Claiming the prize were Kirtsian, Ollie and Edward from Retford St Joseph’s Primary School, who together wrote an excellent poem called 'Never Give Up.'

Schools co-ordinator, Kelly Jackson-Powell said: “I think it’s fantastic that so many of our partner schools have got involved with this, the theme of resilience fits perfect with our day to day curriculum so we’re delighted with the amount of entries and also the standard of them.

“It just goes to show how much of an impact the Premier League are making with projects as such, it gets children involved with writing because they want to, not because they have to.

A huge congratulations must go to Ollie, Edward and Kristian, who wrote a fantastic poem to win the prize; we hope they enjoy their rewards.”

The trio were handed a signed Doncaster Rovers ball each, along with three complimentary tickets for the Bristol Rovers game. Their poem will be showcased in the match day programme on that day.
