The journey for Robbie and Mauro started in January of this year at the Norfolk and Suffolk Wing Sports Trials. Following selection for the Wing team, their fantastic performances at the Regional competition and trials resulted in a Regional representation. These are representations at the highest level for this age group and takes 1109 (Thetford) Squadron’s Wing and Regional representations to twenty for 2017 already.
Robbie, 16, said ‘It was a great privilege to represent Central and East at rugby this year, the competition on the day was hard fought and the team done really well. I was proud to be a part of it.’
Both cadets are now busy preparing for the Inter Squadron Athletics Championships on Sunday 21st May, where they aim to continue their sporting success.
