8 of our Boccia players compete in the Special Olympics Northern Competition

On Saturday 1st June 2019, our friends at Special Olympics Skelton Cleveland gave us a great welcome as we participated in the Special Olympics Northern Boccia competition in Skelton. We took 8 of our Boccia players to the pairs event. All of our players were raring to go on the drive down and couldn’t wait to put their skills into the competition.

Despite being in pairs, all of our athletes were a massive support to each other whilst playing their team games. You can see by the attached photos how much team spirit there is. Our results were impressive:

Shaun Clark & Matthew Lone 1x Gold

Peter Smith & Athlete 1x 4th place ribbon

Jason Fox & John Farrimond 1x 5th place ribbon

Susan Dalton & Aaron Younger 1x 5th place ribbon

All athletes were delighted with their achievements.
