County sports teams in action - By Capt N Bizzell

A sport filled weekend

4 July 2022

  • Humberside And South Yorkshire ACF

The county had a very sporty weekend with two big events. On the Saturday the county sent teams to the Regional Rugby competition, and on Sunday entered a team into the Brims Cup Mixed Relay Triathlon.

The Rugby was the Regional selection event with cadets from across the region. Our cadets performed really well and a large number of those attending have been selected t represent the brigade at the nationals.

The Brims cup is a mixed relay triathlon competition. Pitting Cadets and Adults from across the north against each other in a super sprint triathlon relay. For the mixed relay event an equal mix of male and female competitors is required. To compete for the Brims cup the team also has to have an adult, and a cadet between 15 and 16 years old. Prizes were awarded by Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson.

We entered a mixed team to build experience within the county. The team worked hard and made a great effort but did not manage to compete with some very fast teams to win any prizes but the team enjoyed the day and will be back next year.
