A robotics club at a Suffolk primary school have been crowned champions at a national competition.
Seven pupils from Holbrook Primary School travelled to Calday Grange Grammar School near Birkenhead for the UK finals of RoboCup.
Called the Digiminds, the group took home first prize at the contest, known for being the world’s largest robotics competition.
The youngsters were joined on the trip by their parents and computing teacher Richard Williams.
Year six pupil Jazmin, 11, said: “I only joined the club this year. I never thought that I’d get to do this. Now I’ve seen robot football and the rescue robots. The robots were so exciting when they scored a goal.

“I wasn’t quite sure what the rescue robots had to do though, but I was writing it all down in my notebook. When it was our turn to step up on stage, I was really nervous, but it was great fun.”
The club will be performing their winning robot dance to the rest of the school tomorrow.
