BUDMOUTH College’s Year Eight's football team have collected clothing from parents, staff and the community for the bag2school fundraising scheme to purchase new kits for the current 2017-18 season.

The squad is returning this year after winning the Area Cup as Year Sevens and runners-up in the school Dorset County Cup 2016-17.

This season the team hopes to have raised enough money to purchase a new strip by the second round of the country’s school National tournament in mid-October.

The team have worked hard both on and off the pitch under the tutelage of Luke De La Haye, sport teacher at Budmouth.
