More Athletics Glory for Cpl Clark and Cdt C James

On another blisteringly hot weekend following the inter-squadron athletics competition, Cpl Clark and Cdt C James were selected to represent West Mercian Wing at the Wales and West Regional Athletics Competition against rival Wings – Merseyside, Staffs and Welsh Wings 1, 2 and 3. Both cadets did themselves and the squadron proud, winning 1 Gold, 2 Silver and 2 Bronze medals. Thanks to their efforts the Wing won the u17 men’s competition and came second in the overall trophy.

Sqn Ldr Feast, the Wing Sports Officer, visited the squadron afterwards to present the cadets with their Wing Sports Blues.
