Spen air cadets showed their sporting prowess during an inter-squadron Cross Country Competition held at Thornes Park, Wakefield.

Teams of cadets from around West and South Yorkshire took part in the gruelling three-mile course race.

The Spen boys’ team, made up of Cadets James Dolan, Robert Featherstone and Jack Webb did so well that, combined, they beat every other team to claim first place.

Their commanding officer Flight Lieut Kellyann Martin said: “They were awarded gold medals by the Wing Sports Officer and were presented with the annual wooden team plaque, which has been sent for engraving and will proudly display the squadron name this year at the Wing Headquarters.”
