A Penarth school has been celebrating its success in an Urdd football tournament.

Ysgol Gymraeg Pen y Garth's team capped off an impressive run, finishing in joint third place at the competition held on May 11.

The event saw 20 schools from across Wales play at Blaendolau fields in Aberystwyth.

This follows the team's victory in the regional rounds in February, winning the regional round against 47 other schools from Cardiff and the Vale.

The boys from years five and six represented their county with relentless enthusiasm, braving the warm weather and playing in six games across four hours.

After a series of wins and one draw in the group stage, the team moved through to the quarter finals.

A nerve-wracking penalty shoot out against Ysgol Gymraeg Pontybrenin from Swansea was a highlight, earning them a spot in the semi-finals.

Their impressive run was curtailed by a 1-0 loss to Ysgol y Dderwen from Carmarthen, who went on to win the competition.

Miss Becca Pugh, the school's headteacher, said: "This is a fantastic achievement and it was a wonderful experience watching the boys represent the school and county at The Urdd nationals.

"I’m very proud of how they played but also their teamwork and attitude throughout."
