Matthew Smith (1st team football manager) said, “'Duka was a late applicant to Wyke but slotted into the football first team quickly. He impressed us with his pace, strength and eye for goal. He has done outstandingly well to get through the trials locally and nationally to reach this level. We are proud of his achievements and hope he inspires others this year and in coming years.

The Wyke Netball 1st Team have again been crowned u19 County Champions, the third time in six years. Head Coach Julie Peaks said, “I couldn’t be more proud of the girls. They have worked hard to improve over the past eight weeks since starting out as a new team. They will continue to train hard and look forward to the Regional Finals in February 2012.”
The path to success has been a challenge, beginning in October in the Hull Schools round. The 1st played and drew both games against Wilberforce and Hymers. Disappointingly, the team ended up going through to the County round as runners-up, even though they didn’t lose a game.
As the team progressed to the County round in November, it meant playing the two winners of the East Riding championships, as well as Wilberforce again. The winners would become u19 County Champions and go through to the Regional Competition representing Hull and East Riding.
The first game was against Hull Collegiate, Wyke won 9-5. The second game was against Cottingham High School, Wyke won 8-2. Wilberforce also beat these two teams, so it meant the final game between Wyke and Wilberforce was a decider for the Championship. At the earlier round the two teams had drawn 7-7. Wyke started well, leading by two at half time, but ended up winning 9-5 becoming u19 County Champions.
Team Captain, Abigail Harper said, “We're the U19 county champions for the second year in a row, I'm so proud of the team, everyone played to the absolute best of their ability and it really showed on the day winning each match in the tournament. Hopefully we can keep up this winning streak!"Read more
