It was all fair play at beat the goalie; St Peter's Primary pupils organise end-of-term footie event.

Byline: KENNETH SPEIRS

Football and fair trade teamed up at a Paisley school.

St Peter's Primary organised a fun end-of-term beat the goalie event that saw them use balls made by Bala, which were put together by overseas makers as part of the Fair Trade movement's decent-wage scheme.

"We are a Fairtrade school," said teacher Anne Campbell. "This was our way of supporting that."

The youngsters of all ages had a whale of a time as they put on their scoring boots to get those balls into the net.

"It was a great success and everyone really enjoyed it," added Mrs Campbell.
