BAYLEY Evanson and Tamzin Nicholas were crowned the winners of the Hot Shot Challenge when Cheltenham Town went to Severn View Academy.

The Stroud-based school welcomed Robins striker Byron Harrison and defender Troy Brown as Evanson and Nicholas triumphed over their classmates in the fastest-shot competition.

Evanson hit a big 40 mile-per-hour shot, while Nicholas was the best of the girls with a score of 29mph.

The Robins players also took up the challenge, with Harrison edging Brown 61mph to 59mph.

Next week, Young Sport will be reporting from Gastrells School in Stroud.

On January 16, the Robins head to Charlton King’s Junior School, with St Mark’s Church of England Junior School the week after.

At the end of January, Coberley Primary School will take part in the Hot Shot Challenge, and Swindon Village Primary School have a chance to reach April’s final on February 6.

The Hot Shot Challenge then heads to Abbeymead Primary School on February 13, and will then join The King’s Junior School.

Oak Hill Primary School in Tewkesbury will take part at the beginning of March, and the Robins will head to St Edward’s Junior School the week after, before Bishop’s Cleeve Primary School have a go.

The final will be at the Abbey Business Stadium before the League Two clash with Southend on April 5.
