North West Boys Competition

On February 17th, a large number of our boys squad competed in the NW Development Championships and NW Closed Individual & Teams at Wigan.

For some of them, this was their first competition and everyone rose to the occasion and performed brilliantly.

Congratulations boys, we look forward to seeing you compete in the future !  Thanks to all of our fantastic coaches too!

Valentine’s cake sale

The cake sale held in the gym went down a treat and raised £443 over the weekend! Thanks to everyone who baked and helped out.  All monies raised will go towards pre school spring boards and bar pads

 

Dan Purvis announces retirement..

In February, Dan announced his retirement from MAG which was a sad day for the sport and Southport Gymnastics Club.  In his career, he has represented Great Britain, Scotland, the North West and SGC at the highest level and on the world stage. He has been coached from the age of 6 by Jeff Brooks  who has been the ‘back bone’ of his career and trained alongside Frank Baines at our club for years.  We will miss watching Dan compete but he will continue to be a huge part of our club as a coach.   For now though, we wish him all the very best and every success in the future.

“A stellar career which has sadly but inevitably come to an end.  The 2012 Olympic legacy has been monumental for our club.  The quiet, shy,  introverted young boy we took on 22 years ago has developed into a fine, unassuming young man”  Jeff Brooks
