We’ve had a busy start to summer with lots happening in May and June.
Our Junior Section football league kicked off in May. After six weeks of (mostly) good weather, the league reached its conclusion and we crowned Salem as champions. Well done to all the Juniors who took part, it’s been great to see so many of you enjoying their football on Monday evenings. Thanks to all the staff involved with organising this competition and to all our volunteers who have brought their teams, refereed, coached, washed kit and supported the event.
We were at the Halifax Charity Gala on Saturday 10th June. Despite the mixed weather on the day, we raised over £1600 for Battalion funds. A fantastic team effort as always; thanks to all who ran our refreshment marquee, organised the float, BBQ, penalty shoot-out and coconut shy. We even got awarded the runners up prize for the best charity stall! Well done to all involved.
Our under 26 Officers organised this years Anchor Boy Fun Evening in June. An enjoyable evening, with plenty of games, a scavenger hunt and, most importantly, doughnuts, was had by all. Thanks to the under 26 group for organising the event.
Finally, we held our Junior and Company Section Athletics competition on Friday 30th June. The Juniors competed in sprints, long jump and those more traditional Olympic sports welly throwing, bean bag throw and egg and spoon. The Company Section had a go at the long jump, high jump, sprints and the dreaded 800 metres! Well done to the Junior Section winners Illingworth and the Company Section winners Elland and Carlton. Thanks to all the Officers and volunteers who helped organise the event tonight. Great team effort as usual!
Two more events to go this session. Firstly, we have the Junior Section Games Master on Wednesday 5th July then we have the Company Section Laser Tag event on Friday 14th July.
