INTERNATIONAL and Premiership football referee Howard Webb was in Rawmarsh to present pupils with trophies.

The presentation was pupils who shone in the inaugural SCORCH football tournament, with both individual and school trophies handed out.

The tournament, partly organised by South Yorkshire Police and Rotherham Council, involved around 350 kids from Rawmarsh Comprehensive School along with pupils from Wath, Pope Pius, and Swinton schools.

Rawmarsh players were successful in two year groups and were lucky enough to receive their trophies from the Mr Webb who officiated the 2010 World Cup final.

Insp David White said “The idea of the tournament came from Colin Broadhurst of CB Leisure in Rotherham. The aim is to encourage children into sport and act in a positive, well-behaved manner during a period when many children are seen as causing issues.”
