Show their Sporting Stars 1360

Another early morning for the Cadets at 1360 (Stapleford and Sandiacre) Squadron as they embarked on yet another sporting adventure.

Meeting at the squadron at 7am would usually mean tired eyes, but not for the 1360 cadets! Bright eyed and ready to go with their hand made posters and a cheerful spirit, the cadets set off to Saffron Lane Athletics Stadium, a quick practice and they were ready to race.

After and early morning and a long day, taking place in every event the squadron could not have been prouder with themselves and each other. Overall the squadron came well deserved 4th place with each age category coming 4th/5th. Flight Sergeant Abigail Jones (17) said ā€œIā€™m so proud of all the cadets that represented our squadron, we all put full effort into everything we did and we kept the morale high, the early mornings were very difficult but so worth it!ā€

In the end we got 6 cadets through to represent our wing (South and East Midlands) our sports stars were Flight Sergeant Liam Osbiston (17) Sergeant Matthew Carre (17) Corporal Jake Harlow (17) Corporal Jade Cox (15) Cadet Lucy Oakden (14) and Cadet Charlie Alvey (14) all will travel back down to Leicester to compete against other wings in the Region.
