Essex’s Got Sporting Talent!

In yet another huge achievement for Essex, young trampolinist Josh Newman will be representing Great Britain at Next month’s World Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria.

With this latest win it certainly seems Essex is bursting at the seams with sporting talent! As Chadwell Heath Academy get ready to represent England in the World Schools Volleyball Championships in Portugal, Bancroft’s Prep School will be preparing to represent Redbridge at the London School Games at Crystal Palace. Now Josh Newman joins the celebrations with his latest success. Essex should be feeling very proud of itself and the wonderful accomplishments its young people have made.

Josh will be competing in both the individual and synchro tournament, as well as representing Britain at the Germany vs Great Britain youth match in Cottbus, Germany in less than a fortnight’s time.

After smashing his personal best scores by an amazing three points, the junior athlete won both events for his age group over the course of two weekends.

As if this wasn’t achievement enough, Josh has also been awarded an inspired athlete award from Active Essex county council.

We will be keeping all our fingers and toes crossed for Josh in hope that he reaches his goal and becomes world age champion. Good luck!!!
