The competition was also used by Central and East Region to select cadets for the Regional football trials and consequently represent the Region on the 15th November. Team captain, Mitchell Plumtpon and Callum Brown were selected and look forward to competing for a place in the Regional team.
Sergeant Matt Drewry, Wing Football Team Manager and staff member at 1109 squadron said; ‘It’s fantastic to see three of our cadets selected for the wing team and even more so that Mitchell and Callum have been selected for the Regional trials. All three were important team players on the day and contributed greatly to the wing coming third overall’. Mitchell has previously represented Central and East Region at football and he is eager to make it in two consecutive seasons.
