Cadets from 723 (Wigan) Squadron arrived at UCLan Arena Preston to take part in the Cumbria & Lancashire Wing athletics. The cadets were assembling for the Wing annual athletics tournament which sees all the Squadrons in the Wing gather together to compete on the track and field.

The cadets competed in a range of track and field event, with the Squadron winning nineteen medals overall, this was an exceptional team effort.  With the Sqn entering every event this help to secure winning the overall team event.

The Squadron was also proud of their drill team who came up against thirty two other squadrons to win the wing drill competition. The cadets have put weeks of hard work into their drill and uniforms to pick up first prize. 723 Wigan now go on to represent North Region at RAF Linton on Ouse next month.

Flight Lieutenant Hugh Shields added “The cadets have done so well to achieve what they did; they worked well as a team throughout both competitions and they can be very proud of their achievements.
