Deepings girl conkers all...
Full marks to the Head Teacher at Linchfield School for keeping the great British tradition of conkers alive and well.
It's all down to Head Teacher St John Burkett who organised the Battle of the Golden Conker at the Deeping St James Primary School - drilling thousands of conkers which children collected.
Ten-year-old Sophie Langan was crowned champion - with a garland of conkers - after beating fellow ten-year-old Dylan Knowling in the tense final.
Dylan told the Bourne Local he was chuffed to get to the final and felt like England winning the rugby until he met Sophie (picture from the Local website).
Hope that's not an omen for the final of the Rugby World Cup!
