WARRINGTON Guardian’s sport sponsor winners provide an update on their progress and forthcoming activities.
Crosfields Cobras under 12s rugby league team: On Sunday the Cobras met local rivals Burtonwood Bulldogs, hoping to reverse the result from the sides’ last meeting in July.
Cobras took an early lead with a try from James Machin, the ball sailing through hands for him to dive in.
Bulldogs fought back and took the lead with a scoot over the line.
Cobras regained the lead when moment-of-the-match winner Oliver Hill offloaded the ball with four defenders on him into the hands of player-of-the-match Ryan Orr, who crossed for Cobras’ second try.
At the death, Cobras were caught napping and another scoot saw the Bulldogs equal the score for a 10-10 draw.
Coach’s award winner went to Andrew Jobling and top defender was Scott Turton.
Cobras are selling tickets for the Halloween Ball on October 26 and are appealing for sponsorship, donations and raffle prizes. Call Kate on 07793 198260 for more information.
Dance team, Michael Manning and Annabell Harman: The duo have been training hard, but an injury to Michael’s foot has had a knock-on effect on their schedule and he has not been able to keep up in some of the lessons and practice sessions.
Fortunately, his foot appears to be on the mend and the pair trained for three hours on Wednesday.
They focused on footwork technique and creating a free-flowing routine in the waltz and foxtrot.
Ahead of the Britain’s Best competition in Birmingham on October 26, Michael said: “To perform well we have to think of the ‘whole body’, which includes facial expressions, upper body and arms as well as the correct steps.
“This is a well-attended competition throughout the dancing world and we hope to achieve good results.
“I am also performing during the open evenings this week at Priestley College with the performing arts students.”
