Success at the Hampshire Youth Games
48 schools entered the Hampshire track knock out competition this year. Only 8 would make it through to the final at Aldershot military stadium as part of the 2018 Hampshire Youth Games. I’m pleased to say that the Burgate U15 Boys team managed just that and travelled up to Aldershot on Friday 22 June after two good performances: in the qualifying round and then again in the semi-final. We arrived in good form and with a strong team so were hopeful of doing well.
