YOUNGSTERS from West Fife primary schools shone brightly in the sun as they showcased their skills at an outdoor hockey festival.

A total of 128 pupils, from 13 schools which made up 16 teams, took part in the P7 event, which was held on Wednesday at Woodmill High School.

Run by Dunfermline Carnegie Hockey Club, in partnership with Dunfermline and West Fife Sports Council, the competing sides were split into four groups of four to play six-a-side games.

The winners then went through into another section of four to decide the top placings and, after a series of competitive matches, Canmore Primary's 'A' team were the winners by a single goal.

They placed ahead of Inzievar, Crossford and Commercial 'A'.

In the weeks prior to the festival, a number of the pupils were able to take part in coaching from Dunfermline Carnegie's club coaches, Drew Mitchell and Dougie Hill, the latter of whom said: "The kids enjoyed it.

"It was a good day and hopefully we can get a few of them coming along to some of our hockey youth sessions."

The event was supported by Active Schools Fife young leaders from Dunfermline High School, who provided assistance on the day, including with umpiring.

Throughout the calendar year, Dunfermline and West Fife Sports Council work with local clubs to provide a series of festivals across a variety of sports for primary school pupils.
