That’s better, spring is on its way and we’ve reached that time of year when the so called ‘winter sports’ start to give us a clearer picture of their final standings. With local cup finals on Sevenoaks Town FC’s 3G pitch scheduled for March and April, we will be featuring these in the next edition, plus will we see the Town and the Sevenoaks Suns lift their respective titles.
For now, we are content with knowing that’s all to come soon but we’ve still got a packed issue for you this month. Premier League Hockey has returned to Hollybush Lane as we catch up on the men’s latest outing. Sevenoaks Swimming Club get on their marks as the new Kent County Championships get underway, with a report from Joanna Percy.
We also talk to Kelan Ryan, an 18-year old from Kemsing who has immersed himself in the art of Parkour, or Freerunning to those who think that’s a jacket from the 70’s. What he does is amazing!
We get up close and personal with a dynamic duo at Sevenoaks Town FC. Chairman Paul Lansdale and first team manager Micky Collins tell us how and why they are making things happen at the Bourne Stadium, and with the visit of Real Madrid in the summer, there’s a lot more going on at Greatness than you probably thought.
The Better Body Group have just launched a new, not-for-profit, venture called 28 Days better. It’s a series of 28 home workouts plus a nutrition plan suitable for any ability, to help burn some serious body fat. Their director, Chris Wharton, tells us how to get the heart and lungs pumping and dust off some cobwebs.
The Health Boost also make a welcome return to Sevenoaks Sports and this month it’s all about boosting your mood. If you’ve had enough of the long winter and feel low then this article is for you, giving you nutritional tips and advice to elevate your mood.
We’ll be back again in March with features on the S&DFL and specifically the Sevenoaks Sports sponsored Smiths League Cups. Plus, local cricket clubs ask if you have any plans this summer, and the local man who cycles round East Africa for charity. Until then, keep it local and keep it sports.
