Sunday 13th March saw the Wing enter teams into the Region Girls Hockey and Senior Boys Football Competition held at RAFC Cranwell.

Cadets came from across the Wing to take part in the Competition and certainly didn’t let themselves, their Squadrons or the Wing down.

The Hockey Team had an excellent turn-out and the team played with all the heart and enthusiasm that could be expected of them. The trials and training by the team manager paid off with the girls in high spirits on the day.

The team won four games and drew one throughout the Competition, and managed to walk away with the 1st position on the day. The girls were each rewarded with an individual gold medal and presented with the Region Hockey trophy by Regional Commandant – Group Captain Morrell.

Team Manager “CI Rosie Glenister – 1461 Sqn” was overjoyed with the result and commented that the girls had come close the winning the competition over the past few years and had finally managed to pick up the trophy – Well done.

The Football team unfortunately didn’t have the same look on the pitch as the girls, but still put their heart and soul into every game. They managed to win the 1st game, but then went on to be beaten by other teams throughout the day eventually getting the 6th position overall. The competition was to a high standard and the overall positions were still very close till the end.

Flt Lt Lynda Waplington – Wing Sports Officer Commented that the turn out and team spirit on the day was excellent, and it was brilliant to see the trend set last weekend at the Rugby continue by taking home another trophy – well done.
