1220 cadets at the Open Netball Tournament

The Girls from 1220 (March) Squadron recently took part in the Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire Wing Open Netball Tournament at RAF Brampton. The five girls that attended were split up and full teams were made up with other girls from around the Wing.

Corporal Chanel Ogden played both the Centre and Wing Attack positions during the day. After all of the matches had been played the results were worked out and the team Corporal Ogden played with were presented with Bronze medals by Officer Commanding Beds & Cambs Wing, Wing Commander Paul Bower.

While the Netball competition was underway the Senior boys from Beds and Cambs Wing were outside on the Sports pitch taking part in Football Trials to see if they could be selected. Three cadets from 1220 Squadron attended and Corporal Alex MacRae was successful in being chosen to represent the Wing.

Corporal MacRae travelled to RAF Cranwell to play football against the other Wings in the Central and East Region of the Air Training Corps. The Beds & Cambs Wing team were awarded Silver medals and Alex was presented with a Wing Representation certificate.
