WARRINGTON Guardian sports sponsorship winners are keeping busy.
* Grange Football Club under 12s: They are busy preparing for the start of the new Warrington Junior League season this weekend.
After a long lay-off over summer, training has been stepped up to twice per week and a friendly has taken place against Monk Sports to help get the players in good shape for the visit by Crosfields Ireland on Saturday.
In their preparations, the boys have been focusing on teamwork and concentration for the entirety of a game.
They will be asked to stick to the game plans, listen to the coach and play with their usual heart and passion.
Grange have invested their £500 sponsorship award from Warrington Guardian on new goalposts and nets, training footballs and training jackets.
* Crosfields Cobras under 12s rugby league team: On the resumption of the summer season at the weekend, the team defeated Widnes St Maries 16-0 to progress to the quarter finals of the Lancashire Cup.
Lewis Hall beat four defenders to break the deadlock with the only try of the first half. James Machin broke from inside his own half for the second try and he made the final pass to put Oliver Hill over for the third.
Crosfields are raising funds to go on tour. They are looking for sponsorship from companies, or donations of raffle prizes. They also want readers to consider donating items that they would normally take to a tip or charity shop. Collection can be arranged if required.
On Wednesday, September 18, they will be having a fundraising night at the Maplewood Chinese Restaurant. Tickets, including a banquet meal, are £24.95 for adults and £10 for children.
For tickets, to make donations, or to provide sponsorship, call Joanne on 07971 710824 or Kate on 07793 198260.
* Dance team, Michael Manning and Annabell Harman: After family summer holidays, the dance partners have returned to their lessons and practice sessions.
They compete in the under 35 national pre-amateur championship, dancing ballroom and Latin.
Manning and Harman also feature in higher level competitions for experience.
They have contested 12 competitions so far this year, earning national ratings of second in ballroom and fourth in Latin.
Regular training takes place in Liverpool but they have also practiced at Stage-Pro Studios in Warrington this week, having been invited to showcase dances during their open day on Saturday.
The duo’s next competition is on September 15 in Walsall.
