It has been another busy week of sport across our corner of East London and Essex and, in a new feature, we take a look at some of our favourite stories from our editions over the past seven days in The Saturday Six.

A typical week can see our team reporting on anything from athletics, basketball, cricket, darts, football, hockey, ice hockey, karate, rugby, swimming, tennis and volleyball, from West Ham in the Premier League down to under-eights mini rugby in a local park.

But we always like to hear about any kind of sporting stories, so don’t hesitate to get in touch with your news.

Now, in no particular order of preference, but more a case of chronology, here are my picks of the week:

Boxers Jimmy Tibbs and Mohammed Ali with sports reporter Len Whaley Boxers Jimmy Tibbs and Mohammed Ali with sports reporter Len Whaley

1.The Barking & Dagenham Post included a story on Roding Cannington Primary School, who kept their nerve to win a penalty shoot-out and lift the Evans Moore seven-a-side silverware.

2.The Newham Recorder featured fencing news from the Newham Swords, who saw Kamal Minott produce a superb display for Great Britain at the Junior World Cup event in Poland.
