London Youth Games 2019

London Youth Games 2019 has come to an end, and what an end we had!

Team Southwark have had huge success this year, finishing 13th overall out of the 33 London Boroughs. This year the athletic talent within the borough was extremely high, with Boys & Girls winning gold in the athletics relays, and the boys being crowned overall Athletics champions. The girls were not eclipsed achieving 3rd place overall.  Other successes from the final weekend include Gold for the Girls Hockey team, Silver for the Girls Basketball team, and Gold for the BMX team.   

However none of this is possible without a dedicated group of on the day Team Managers, volunteers, schools, staff. This year we had some exceptional work experience students from London South Bank University and Notre Dame School who made a significant impact to supporting Team Southwark.

Jackson Gibbons, Team Manager emailed us after the event;

‘I just wanted to say thank you for your great work on LYG this year, it was by far the easiest for us to be a part of and run extremely well. We really appreciated your help on it all’
