Wonderfully, four St. Bede’s teams played in the District Quicksticks Finals staged at Boldon School. All of the children showed good sportsmanship and played with determination at the event.
Three of our teams finished a highly creditable second in their groups; just missing out on a place in the semi-finals. The A Team managed to top their group before going on to win their semi-final against East Boldon and final against St. Matthew’s.
This was an incredible display by the A team who have now won 10 consecutive games this season to become South Tyneside Quicksticks Champions 2018. Amazingly, the competition had fifty eight (58) teams involved this year! St. Bede’s will now represent the borough at ‘The Parks’ Sports Complex in North Shields in the County Finals in March 2018.
Meanwhile, I was delighted by the whole squad who represented our school in the finals event, for the way they all supported one another throughout the finals. Thank you very much to the parents and family members who supported our children.
