Bleasby Church of England Primary School celebrate Sam White Memorial Shield win




For the first time in their history, Bleasby Church of England Primary School won the Sam White Memorial Shield ­— a tournament that celebrates the life of Sam White, who died in 2013 having battled a brain tumour.

Sam, aged 16 when he sadly died, was a hockey enthusiast and often coached school children in his free time.

The tournament, in partnership with Newark Hockey Club, was created to raise awareness of the Sam White Legacy, and to introduce children to the sport.
