It’s been a fantastic few months at SHTC for Inclusive sports. In July the school held an inclusive sports day for over 50 students from 5 different schools, with sports ranging from Goal ball to New age Curling. A great day had by all.
The school also has two students attending the Electric Eels session at Sirius Academy every other Saturday 1-3pm. Amy Sherman (past student) and Connor Sweeney (Y7) are part of Electric Eels team currently taking part in the National League. This weekend they took part in matches against Sale Utd and Everton. Despite losing both matches spectators felt the team had really improved. Amy Sherman played her heart out during the Sale Match earning her the title of Player of the Match. The team are doing really well and look forward to their future matches.
April saw the introduction of the disability football session in partnership with East Riding County FA and Sproatley Juniors taking place at South Holderness Technology College 3G pitch. Ran by Chris Turner from Sproatley Juniors the weekly session has gone from strength to strength with a regular 12 players each week. The team has played several tournaments together at Hull University and Goals Football centre. A great achievement from all involved especially Chris Turner and Andy Hoe-Richardson from Sproatley Juniors Football club for their time and effort.
Two of the participants have gone on to have successful trials with North East and Yorkshire Regional CP team. Connor and Kurtis Lapping played their first game this Saturday 22nd November at the Sports Village in York.
‘’The progression taken by these fantastic players goes to show the impact of just giving football a go can have on you further along your development. This is a fantastic achievement and the players have certainly done themselves proud, keep up the good work!!" Pete Allison Disability football development officer form East Riding County FA.
