A local sports team has been crowned the best in Wales for the eighth in the last 13 years.

The Tenderfoot Team won the Welsh Disabled Sports Team Championship held at the Sport Wales National Centre in Cardiff.

The Tenderfoots were originally formed in conjunction with the Rotary Clubs of Saundersfoot and Tenby and have players from all round Pembrokeshire.

After a five year gap members were delighted to take the Welsh Disabled Sports Team Championship once again.

To cap off an already outstanding day, the Tenderfoots other team, Tenderfoot Too, came third overall.

Team Captain for the Tenderfoot Team Josh George set the standard for the day in the static rowing.

The Tenderfoot Team also came first in the boccia thanks to John and Angie Richards and Bethan McCarthy.

They also came joint first place in the football shoot-out thanks to George MacCreath, Daniel Pullin and Jack Woods; joint first place for the table tennis team of James Dash and Lynsey McCarthy and second place for the new age kurling Team including Jonathan Hubbard.

The second team, Tenderfoot Too, under the captaincy of Sam MacCreath came first in static rowing along with Geraint Lewis and Olly Owen; first in new age kurling thanks to Marion Haymer Wayne Llewellyn and Darren Briggs; first in the basketball shoot-out; including David Phillips with brother Gareth Phillips competing well in the pool and Francis Corbett in the weight lifting.

The Tenderfoot Team was formed in conjunction with the Rotary Clubs of Saundersfoot and Tenby who undertook the training for this year’s competition, ably assisted in the transport arrangements by the Rotary Club of Narberth and Whitland.

A strong contingent from the Saundersfoot club travelled to Cardiff to support the teams together with members of the Wisemans Bridge Rowing Club who ran the static rowing competition.

The Rotary clubs can be justifiably proud of the fact that they are the only Rotary clubs in south Wales to undertake such training for the disabled.

Team managers, Rotarians Charles Hopkinson and John Walker-Smith of the Rotary Club of Saundersfoot, stated that it had been an ‘outstanding achievement’ to win the competition and also to have third place awarded to their other team, proving that the practice undertaken throughout the year has paid off.

Tenderfoot train at the Regency Hall, Saundersfoot, normally on the last Friday of each month where new entrants are encouraged to participate.
