Central & East Region Air Cadets

1986 Wymondham Squadron shared a post.

Central and East Region’s Senior Boys and Girls emphatically made their mark on day of Hockey and Football at an RAF Cranwell that was suffering the effects of Storm Hannah.

The Senior Girls Hockey Championship was won by the Central and East Team without conceding a goal. They overcame both the weather and strong and determined opposition from the other regions to run out worthy winners of the Corps Championship.

The team drew two of their matches and won three to amass a score of 11 points that was sufficient to give them the number one place.

Cadet Morgan Charles-Jones of South and East Midlands wing was declared the Region’s Player of the Tournament.
The strong swirling wind played a part in all the Senior Boys Football matches, however, the Central and East’s players mastered the conditions and proved a force to be reckoned with.

Having played a goalless draw against Wales and West Region, they went on to beat South West Region by two goals to nil. These scores were sufficient to put them in the play offs with London and South East Region.

The outcome of this exciting, hard fought, match would decide the Championship and when the final whistle blew after an exciting end to end game, Central and East won with a score line of 2 - 1.

Adjudged the Region’s Player of the Tournament was Cadet Sergeant Cameron Lord of South and East Midlands Wing.

The Region Sports Officer, Squadron Leader Michelle Worsnop, was fulsome in her praise; “The weather with Storm Hannah was appalling at Cranwell but our cadets and the staff were fantastic. Both teams played as "teams" and in the case of the football not only battled the weather but cadets not attending and a nasty injury and still came out on top. The girls took until their third game to get the ball "on target" but had so many chances to score in the first two games but it was like there was cling film over the goal!!

Many Thanks to everyone who came to Cranwell”. Michelle further added; “We're back on top as the No 1 Region, thank you to everyone who has helped to make that happen”.
