Rugby players at a Fenland college have got their hands on some stylish new kit they designed themselves.

The shirts were designed by a group Neale-Wade Academy students who attended a Canterbury kit design workshop last year.

On the day the boys met with officials from the RFU and designed four different shirts, before deciding on their favourite.

The kit they chose links in with the school colours and March Bears rugby club.

Year 10 student Lewis Harvey unveiled the shirt at the England Six Nations match against Wales on Sunday.

Neale-Wade Academy’s rugby teams are having an excellent season - the Year 8 team is through to the quarter finals of the County Cup and both the Year 7 and Year 10 teams won their district competitions.
