Our biggest ever squad of 20 took part in the first round of the Greater Manchester Sportshall competition at Sportcity on Sunday, with over half making their competitive debut for the club. We were well represented across all the age groups and events and had teams in two of the relay categories for the first time for a number of years.
There were some highly promising performances from our debutants in all the age groups, whilst our seasoned Sportshall campaigners continued where they left off last season with some excellent efforts.
Highlights included 1 and 3 lap heat wins for Lewis Thirsk, Adam Boardman and Harry Wain, an impressive win for Charlotte Bowker in the 6 lap and very good first efforts at the relay by our teams in the U11 Boys and U13 Girls categories. A full list of performances and placings will be added shortly when we receive it from the organisers.
A big well done to all our athletes and their parents and friends who turned up to support them. We've set a good standard this time, let's go for it and achieve some even better results at the next round on 30th November. PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT WILL START AT 12.00 NOON DUE TO MAN C v MAN U MATCH SO WE WILL NEED YOU TO BE THERE NO LATER THAN 11.15.
