    - pushing for that bronze medal but not quite making it yet!


Club Grades Level 2 and Level 1:

  • The Level 2 team of Ben Rendell, Calum Hutchison, Ben Allan, Nico Gray, Spencer Baker and Ed Cooper from Lincoln;
  • The Level 1 team of Frazer Deabill, Aidan Jolly, Joe Pavey, Alex Brown, Tim Burton and Andrew Stamp from Hinckley
     - all worked well in their teams and should have gained a lot of experience ready for next year!

The East Midlands came 3rd in the Bob Currier Trophy for the number of places in all the club grade competition.

Well done to all the boys - and the coaches and judges - and parents!
