A combination of exciting Relays and “Highland Games” activities were enjoyed by all. The Lancashire Teams for both Boys and Girls produced many Trophy winning performances on the day. Sport & Fun was enjoyed by all, with credit to the Lancashire Team and Management who showed great sportsmanship on the day!
Under 11’s included : Natalie Ashton, Laura Taylor, Catriona Jarrett (back row) and Natassia Dacre, Ellie Dacre (Reserve), Jake Raines (front row) – see photo.
Natalie, Laura, Catriona & Jake all had their first experience of representing their County on this day and performed magnificently.
The under 13’s Girls and Boys Teams also produced fantastic performances on the day, which were from Hannah Storey, Beth Miller, Matthew Ault & Matthew Gibson.
Congratulations to all the Horwich Athletes, it was yet another very PROUD DAY for the club.
