MSMAS medal again at BJA Annual Sussex County Judo Trials ...............

15 x Medals : 4 x Gold, 5 Silver & 6 Bronze... 4 Sussex County Judo Champions & 15 County Players PLUS 2 x ‘Spirit of Judo’ Awards ..


Over the weekend, 21 x MSMAS Judo Players, both Senior and Junior, were in action taking 15 Medals overall at the annual 'BJA Sussex County Trials’….

This means 15 Players at MSMAS are now County Judo Players, 4 of who are also County Judo Champions!

First in action, our Boy’s Team, who won 5 Medals (1 x Gold, 1 x Silver and 3 Bronze) in all….

Next our 3 x Girls competed, each of whom medaled (2 x Silver & 1 x Bronze)...

Then the Men, 4 Medals in all (1 x Gold, 1 x Silver & 2 Bronze) ….

Finally our 3 x Ladies, with another clean sweep (2 x Gold & 1 x Silver)…

In addition 2 x MSMAS Players each received the coveted ‘Spirit of Judo’ Award, given by County to the Players who demonstrated the best attitude towards Judo 'on the day' …

Those Awards went to Ollie Digweed for the Men, Georgie Grassom for the Ladies!

First, may I say well done to all the MSMAS Judo Players that took part.....

This year we also entered some ‘first time Players’, all of whom also performed really well...

As well as all the Medal and competitive success, for two of our Players to each receive ‘Spirit of Judo’ Awards confirms to me that once again our ethos of fair play and respect has been noticed yet again !

Also, for the past 3 years we have been able to offer our Judo ‘totally free of charge’ to any and all Juniors
& Youth (aged 8/18 years) in Sussex, so in time I hope that many others will follow in these footsteps!

Well done to all below :

Boy’s Team: Finn Bazard-Ferns (Bronze), Jake Christian, Daniel Hope, Louis Hope (Bronze),
Jackson Platt, Jake Tweddle (Bronze), Malcolm Thain (Silver) & Martyn Woodhead (Gold)….

Girl’s Team: Maya Kent (Silver), Zoe Welfare (Bronze) & Annabelle Savage (Silver) …

Men’s Team: Matt Tweddle (Bronze), Thomas Thain, Gus O’Grady, Oliver Digweed,
Andrius Pakstaitis (Bronze), Luke Sedge (Silver) & Chris Sharp (Gold).

Ladies Team: Catherine Payne (Gold), Georgie Grassom (Silver) & Shelley Jackson (Gold).

15 x Medals : 4 x Gold, 5 Silver & 6 Bronze.

4 Sussex County Judo Champions & 15 County Players.


2 x ‘Spirit of Judo’ Awards to Oliver Digweed & Georgie Grassom.
