Bury Air Cadets have been training hard with support from Bury St Edmunds Rugby Club for the upcoming Wing Touch-Rugby contest.
10 cadets have been giving up an extra couple of hours each week to learn the ‘skills and drills’ needed to be a champion team. Each week the coach has commented on how they are getting better and stand a real chance at winning this year contest due to be held in Diss. The sport is relatively new to the organization, starting in 2011, but has quickly taken a firm place in the sporting calendar.
Cadet Sergeant Jack Tracey said after last night’s training session “touch rugby is an enjoyable sport and I’m really looking forward to the games, I’m sure the team is as well. I think after the training and bonding as a brilliant team we should have a great result”.
Last year the team finished 4th out of 20 plus squadrons, keep your fingers crossed for the amazing team from Bury, hopefully this year we will bring back some medals.
