The match is a traditional end of season fixture for the club and has seen the single and married men battle for a shield over the years. The game consists of players and coaches from the SPORTS division one to the division three sides. Rather than seeking interest for the game a text message was sent out by this year’s organiser Justin Wolff. “There’s a few guys that are now married who were playing on the other side over the past few seasons. Some of BUSINESSES the single boys looked across thinking really? There’s some quite young fellas who are now in the married side,” said club vice president Darcey Roberts. The married team are hoping to claim back the shield next year with the idea they can gain a few new recruits. Meanwhile, the singles are believed to be equally hopeful of gaining a couple of numbers through divorce. BUSINESSES ELLESMERE COLLEGE COMMONWEALTH GAMES TRIP In April 2018, ten Ellesmere College students will be travelling to see the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia. The trip is directly linked to their Year 13 NCEA Level 3 Physical Education course work where the students study a current physical activity event and its impact on society. The students will have the opportunity to watch events such as the rowing, track and field, netball, rugby, diving and more. While this is an exciting opportunity to see international sport competed at the highest level, the benefits to the students are much bigger than that. This will be an unforgettable trip which will provide adventure, challenge, personal growth and inspiration. The organising, team work, budgeting and planning has begun as the group have been working hard, alongside their usual weekend jobs, on fundraising events including quiz nights, catering, selling pea straw and pumpkin picking. Plans are also in progress for a stall at the Ellesmere Show. The generous spirit of local community has shown itself again with a number of local businesses supporting the students in the form of individual sponsorship. The students and their families would like to express a huge thank you for the help and support of these sponsors whose generosity is very much appreciated.
