Local Club Links

The Local Club Links menu is to help you  find out more about getting involved in a new sport.
The list is not exhaustive but should be a good starting point.  If you can recommend any other sporting clubs in the locality then please let me know and I will add them to the menu.
Remember to always check that club coaches are appropriately qualified and are CRB checked.

Burlington Year 3 & 4 Football team came 3rd in the Dowdales tournament this term, only losing one game.
Jacob's defence was outstanding and was well supported by Patrick. The strong attack came from Ed, Harvey and Jack with Andrew making a welcome new addition to the team as goalkeeper. Well done boys!

The team had to swim one length followed by transition into running a lap of cricket pitch. Mrs Atkinson is confident that the toggles made the difference!
