Hill House School old boy Michael Hills pitched in as the school celebrated the opening of its new sports facility in Blaxton in style.

Doncaster Knights star Hill, formerly of Sale Sharks and London Welsh, cut the ribbon on Hill House’s new 16-acre site. The rugby pitches were then christened with wins for Hill House 1st XV (pictured above) and the U13 A XV.

Headmaster David Holland said: “The sports ground has been a two and a half year project, and we have been hampered in turn by too much rain, not enough rain, and the intricacies of utilities and highways.

“Finally seeing children playing and spectators cheering is a wonderful tribute to all the hard work by so many staff and governors.”

Hill House’s 1st XV ran out 50-10 winners against Read School, with Harry Merrett earning a place in history as the first try scorer at the new grounds.

The U13s also won a 52-47 thriller against Westbourne School.
