THERE were some high jinks at a Stevenage school on Thursday.

A football competition at Barnwell saw prizes awarded by the current Nike freestyle champion Mikey Fisher.

Fisher, who was also on Sky One's Football Icon, gave a cameo in some of the skills that earned him the title.

It was part of Barnwell's second Junior Football Organisers Award (JFO) festival for the school's family of primary schools, in association with the SSCO partnership.

The festival is run by Barnwell Year 10 students who have to organise and run the course as part of their criteria to gain the FA qualification.

The successful afternoon saw a red and blue team entered by Roebuck Junior, Peartree Junior, Broom Barns and Featherstone Wood.

All eight teams consisted of a mixture of Years Three and Four with both boys and girls involved.

Broom Barns Red were the eventual winners.
