Weekend Sports Roundup

All local matches in the Ryman and Combined Counties league fell victim to the weather and were postponed this weekend.

Crawley Town’s league away League 1 match at Brentford was also off.

But good news for Reds fans as they sign Crystal Palace youngsters Hiram Boateng and Sullay Kaikai on initial 28-day loan deals.

Crawley’s manager John Gregory commented on how “Palace have a fantastic reputation for producing young talent”

And Crystal Palace had a great Saturday, beating WBA 3-1 in the Premier League.  They extended their unbeaten home run with goals from debutants Tom Ince and Joe Ledley.

The Inter Junior School Cross Country Race – Reigate

The inter Junior school cross country race between St Mathews, Sandcross, St Josephs, St Johns and Wray Common schools took place on the afternoon of Thursday 30th January on a very muddy Wray Common in Reigate.

The event was organised by Liz Micalowska from Wray Common School and approximately 300 children from year 3 to year 6 took part.

The event was absolutely fantastic, and although the parents supporting the event were certainly faced with “Mud” just about everywhere, the enjoyment on the childrens’ faces said it all. For some their first competitive race.

Each school raced in teams

Neil Munday was there:
