ICYMI: The Saturday Six
PUBLISHED: 07:00 19 November 2016
Our weekly feature on favourite stories
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:
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.
3.The Docklands & East London Advertiser celebrated its 150th birthday this week and included personal recollections of boxing correspondent Len Whaley and a look at the famous Repton club.
4.The Ilford Recorder brought news of 17-year-old Louis Taylor, who made golfing history as the youngest club champion in 126 years at Woodford, and highlighted the other competition winners this year.
5.The Wanstead & Woodford included a preview of Eton Manor Rugby Club’s return to London One North action and the indoor hockey successes of Bancroft’s and Chigwell pupils.
6.The Romford Recorder featured an interview with Upminster Cricket Club captain Alan Ison, who spoke about the England debut of Beth Langston and progress of other young players ahead of their annual dinner & dance this weekend.
