TWO of Beaminster School’s teams have triumphed in the South West Dorset Schools Championships, with both their Year Seven and Year 10 teams claiming honours.
Head of PE at Beaminster School, Mr James Wagstaff, said: “This is a fantastic achievement for such a small school competing against all the other schools in the area.
“I’m very proud of both our winning teams and we’re already looking forward to next year.”

HAVINGbeaten the likes of Dorchester Middle and Colfox School on their way to the final, the Beaminster pupils took on Budmouth School in the final at Weymouth’s Bob Lucas Stadium and secured a 2-1 victory thanks to George Calverly’s penalty and a precise finish from Lewis Keenan.
Wagstaff added: “This is the most talented and competitive team I have seen at Beaminster School and I’m really looking forward to more success in the years to come.”

A DAY later, the school returned to the Bob Lucas Stadium once more as the Year 10 side took on All Saints and produced a scintillating second-half performance to turn things around and claim the trophy.
Having gone in at half-time a goal behind, Adam Harris’ header drew the game level and then Solly Ayunga found the net from the penalty spot to give the school their second success in two days.
Wagstaff said: “This Year 10 team thoroughly deserved this victory in their third attempt to win the cup, and, with such a strong squad of players, we are really looking forward to the County Cup next season.”
