Round the coast walker samples Holderness hospitality

A NORFOLK man has praised the people of Holderness for their kindness and hospitality as he attempts to walk 11,000 miles for charity around the coast of Britain. Sean Grand, 39, of Hunstanton, left the Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve in Lincolnshire on April 18, and plans to follow the coast in an epic journey that will also take in the Orkney Islands, taking at least three years to complete. He is hoping to raise £15,000 for Children with Cancer UK, the leading children’s charity which undertakes vital research into the disease as every day more than 12 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer in the UK. In 2020 the charity lost some 40 per cent of its income due to COVID-19...

Another fine morning down in Keyingham for the U12s

TODAY we come up against Beverley who would provide a much tougher test. Straight away the much larger Beverley side got on top of us but slowly we worked our way back into the arm wrestle, mostly because of some great defence, little Harry B repelling one attack with a great ball and all tackle on one wing and some fine cover defence by Harry D and Matt B on the other wing to put the Beverley winger into touch when they looked to break through, keeping the scores level. Vikings fought their way back in with the forwards finding gaps, great work by George...

Honours shared in the Derby

THE Withernsea under 8s played host to their local rivals Hornsea Sporting on Sunday, the sun was shining, the pitch was cut, what could go wrong?! The boys started well with some great attacking football, Ollie and Louie looked dangerous going forward with Corey and Josh keeping it tight at the back. The deadlock was broken when Corey broke up play, and passed to Josh who found Louie, then Louie played a pinpoint ball to Ollie to latch on to, and Ollie finished in the top corner. Numerous chances were created by the Withernsea boys but they saw their efforts either being saved by the Hornsea keeper, or them hitting the woodwork. Hornsea looked...

Depleted Patrington edge home in tense thriller

A DEPLETED first eleven claimed a 4 wicket victory over Cottingham on Saturday in a thrilling game at Hill Top. Notoriously the firsts have had some highs and lows at Cottingham over the years and this game was one that would certainly join some of the former in terms of one of the most satisying. The week started well, with the news of fast bowler Billy Ineson confirming his return to the club, as the firsts continue to strengthen their squad. But as the week went on, the squad would certainly be stretched to its limit, as the absentee list included Captain Fuller, All-rounder’s Buss, Dixon, Murrey and Harman along..
