Pupils create giant Steven Davis mosaic from sprinkles

Pupils at Steven Davis’s former primary school in Co Antrim have created a very sweet mosaic of the Northern Ireland captain.

The portrait, which measures 12 feet by eight, is made of 40 kilograms of Smarties and 45 kilograms of green and white ice cream sprinkles, provided by Morelli's Ice Cream.

Rikki Peters from Buick Memorial PS said the children wanted to pay tribute to the footballing star ahead of Northern Ireland’s first match at Euro 2016 this weekend.

“He was a pupil here from 1989 to 1996 and we’re supporting him 100% at the moment,” she said.
