A WIGAN primary school has unveiled its first ever rugby team.

Hindley St Peter’s CE Primary School has formed a rugby team for Year Five and Year Six pupils.

The school on Kildare Street, Hindley, has always been a footballing school but when school pupils announced they would like to form a rugby squad, teachers agreed and put one together.

The youngsters were presented with their new kit which has been sponsored by Aqua Plumbing and Heating by St Helens fullback, Thomas Makinson. They are coached by Andy Yates.
