Youngsters produce an impressive London Youth Games medal haul

Redbridge landed a host of medals at the London youth Games judo event, thanks largely to the Heart of Oak club.

Oak fielded 14 members of the borough’s team – and 20 judoka in total – and enjoyed plenty of success.

Gold medals for the boys went to Philip Chinwuba, Jacques Massa and Michal Szczepanik (representing Barking & Dagenham).

Misael Cesaldi and Kazys Murkstys took silver, as Ahmed Amir, Morgan James, Malik Harris and Antoine Massa won bronze.

Girls’ team captain Peaches James clinched a gold medal, despite having to fight up a weight group, as Nancy Palumbo and Ursula Szczepanik (representing Barking & Dagenham) both worked hard for their bronze medals.

The other players who contributed were Joshua Abraham, Kamal Abdulahi, Angel and Crystal Anegbeh, Jeremiah Balforth, Darius Boyce-Glenn, Louis Cesaldi and Piers Massa.

■ In the boys’ handball competition, Redbridge lost 3-2 to Wandsworth in their first match, followed by a 1-0 defeat to Bexley, before drawing 0-0 with City of London to finish bottom of their group.

The girls’ squad fared slightly better, winning their first two matches against Lambeth 5-0 and Wandsworth 2-0, before losing to Bexley 1-0 to finish as runners-up in their group.

However, they bowed out of the competition after a 6-2 loss to eventual winners Southwark in quarter-finals.

■ Teams compete in the girls’ Kwik Cricket today (Thursday), with the main finals at Crystal Palace next weekend.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
