Welcome to Delph Side Sports News HQ. Here at Delph Side we aim to provide every child with every sporting opportunity possible. We have a wide range of lunchtime sports clubs and after school sports clubs that lots of children attend and part of this blog will be about celebrating this. We also enter many competitions and festivals and all of our achievements will be shared through this blog. Keep an eye out for our Junior Sports Reporters who will be posting match reports and updates on here soon.
Well done to our hockey team who became SHARES hockey champions on Tuesday evening. We won 4 games and drew 1 game to reach the semi finals. We beat Hillside in the semi finals in a sudden death penalty shot. It was a close final with Little Digmoor but we successfully converted our sudden death penalty shot to win the tournament.
On Tuesday, Year 6 boys took part in a basketball competition. They drew the first match 1-1. Then a much better performance saw them win 2-0 in their next game. The last 2 games they won 3-1 and an impressive 10-0 victory which was them through to the final. An excellent team effort earned them the runners up place, superb display from all the boys!

Football Museum Trip

Wigan Warriors Rugby Coaching
Recently, a young Delph Side gymnast had her dreams come true when she met her idol, Beth Tweddle. Charlie in Year 4 was delighted to meet one of her heroes, "I met someone I've always wanted to meet, Beth Tweddle. I even got her autograph. Beth is a star and has always been my idol!
Charlie currently trains with the City of Liverpool Gymnastics Club alongside four Olympic gymnasts: Hannah Whelan, Rebecca Tunney, Charlie Fellows and Jade Stefford. With all these amazing role models around her, she has her eyes firmly set on an Olympic appearance in the future. She said, "My gymnastics coach told me that if I carry on working hard I'll be in the 2020 Olympics!" Charlie has been involved in the sport since she was 3 and trains on the bars, beam, trampoline, pit, vault, floor, wall bars and fast track to name but a few (I'm exhausted writing this!!!).
Well done Charlie and keep up the good work!
