Here’s Crusaders’ Alix Hughes on her way to a bronze medal in the Irish Indoor T&F Championships in Magharafelt, Co Derry recently. Memories of one of my first coaching evenings at Irishtown when the first task was to take a spade and shovel several inches of Brent Geese shit out of the shot circle 🙂  Since then the Crusaders’ kids have built themselves a bit of a reputation as throwers with Alix leading the way.

Junior Cru May 2011  Here’s a link to the second issue of the excellent and inspiring Crusaders Junior Newsletter.  Now starting off their third summer season the enthusiasm that was so evident in the early days shows no sign of dimming – quite the opposite.  Many of that first intake are now ‘old hands’ and are setting an example to the newer ones.  Well done to them all and their dedicated coaches and I’m looking forward to tracking their progress in the next few months.
