Young rugby players from Otterton C of E Primary School are celebrating after making their way through to the county tag rugby finals.

The Otterton A team started out by winning a tournament for small schools in the Exmouth area, then won the East Devon contest at The King’s School.

They will now play at the Devon finals in June, and if they are successful there they could go on to the South West finals.

The school’s PE co-ordinator Sally Leat said: “They’ve just been brilliant. We’re very proud of their achievement.”

The youngsters are also celebrating looking sharp on the pitch, having been given some new rugby kit by the school association, OCESA.
