Aspiring sports stars from Garstang Community Academy celebrated their successes with a little help from Liverpool FC U18s player Adam Phillips.

The midfielder and former Garstang pupil, 17, presented a host of awards to team players for their sporting achievements over the past year.

Head of girls’ PE Miss Rainbow said: “It was a pleasure to have Adam present the awards and celebrate our fantastic student successes.”

The school won 16 sporting honours in district and county competitions.

The Year 9 Basketball Team, crowned U14 Lancashire Champions were presented with the boys team of the year award as well as the Year 9 girls rounders team, also Lancashire champions.

Trophies and certificates were presented to ‘Team player of the Year’ as voted for by the players as well as an award for ‘Teacher’s player of the Year’.

The PE department currently runs more than 50 clubs and teams and is hoping to add to this extensive programme with the current fundraising efforts for an all-weather pitch at the school.

Phillips has also been enjoying success on the field so far this season, scoring during the Barclays Premier League U18 match bewteen Everton and Liverpool last month and joining the first team on their trip to Bordeaux as they opened their Europa League campaign.
