Fingal Beach Surf Life Saving Club hosted the Hunter Junior Branch Championships over the weekend.

Fingal Beach SLSC had some outstanding results. The all age beach relay team –  Magnus Gregory, Rohan Clark, Finn Hurley, Aiden Tyack, Will Clark, Grace Hewitt and Cooper Luff – once again won gold.

The all-age board relay team – Rohan Clark, Campbell Stewart, Dracy Brown, Brady Stewart and Cody Campbell – were unlucky not to medal after leading the race for the first five legs before being swamped by Swansea Belmont and Cooks Hill.

There were some outstanding results with the under 12 boys – Boadie Parker, Aiden Tyack, Darcy Brown, Brady Stewart and Will Clark – bringing home silver in the beach relay, cameron relay, swim team and board relay, as well as bronze in the board rescue. 

There were many great individual performances with Fingal Beach looking to send a strong team to the NSW State Titles in March. Magnus Gregory won gold in the eight-year’s wade. Cooper Luff won gold in the under 14 male sprint. Will Clark won gold in the 1km beach run.

Magpies call

Raymond Terrace Rugby League Club are keen to keep their 80-year legacy intact and field a team in the Newcastle/Hunter competition. The Magpies require a coach and support staff as well as a strong player roster for 2017.

Terrace juniors have 20 teams from under 6 through to 17s, forming a pathway to the senior ranks. The club needs former and current players to help the cause.

Contact Jamie on 0408 071 679.

On a positive note the club fields a very strong  ladies tag league team, called the Ravens.

Cricket wins

Nelson Bay Cricket Club’s No.1 team continued their winning ways with a strong victory over Tech College. Sam Triffitt posted 65 runs with allrounder Hamish Bartlett making 63 and taking 2-37. Wayne Banks captured 4-41 with his off spinners.

B1 defeated Doyalson while D2 were too strong for Lords.
