Thursday 28th June we had 5 schools competing for a silver salver trophy, i.e. St Mary’s Whickham, St Joseph’s Blaydon, Kelvin Grove, Caedmon & Eslington. 36 children in total. After a short training period they all competed in a round robin competition. The weather was great and the children all seemed to enjoy themselves. David Bolt, England Player and Bronze Medal winner at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia visited us and presented the trophy and donated a signed shirt to the winning school. Our thanks to Mark Heron of Gateshead Schools Sports Partnership for all his help, and of course our coaches and members who helped on the day – thank you.
The winners by one point were St Mary’s, Whickham. Well done, and well done to all the children on the day, they were great.
