Spartans seek funding for AED

The Spartans are pleased to announce we have been selected to be included in the Tesco fundraising scheme as we look to secure funds to purchase an Automated External Defibrillator.

An AED is an incredible item of equipment that we sincerely hope we would never need to use, but could potentially be life-saving if ever required – and your help in securing the funding would be hugely appreciated.

Until April 30th, you can show your support by dropping your tokens at the following locations:

ARMADA CHAFFORD EXP RM16 6PS 
CHADWELL ST MARY EXPR RM16 4JD 
CHAFFORD HUNDRED EXP RM16 6YA 
DERWENT STH OCKEN EXP RM15 5GN 
GRAYS EXPRESS RM16 2BD 
Lakeside RM20 1TX
SOUTH OCKENDON EXPRES RM15 6AJ 
SOUTHEND RD GRAYS EXP RM17 5NJ

Thank you all in advance!

It was time to celebrate for the senior, Youth, and Junior Spartans teams at their annual Awards Evening on Saturday 15th September.

The event, held at Essex County Cricket Club, was a great success and saw players, coaches, fans, family, and friends come together to celebrate the achievements of the organisation over the past 12 months.

The senior team saw new awards this year for Offensive Back of the Year, Defensive Back of the Year, Linebacker of the Year, and Receiver of the Year, and two players took home hat-tricks of awards – Academy graduate Teddy Geddis claiming Wide Receiver of the Year, Special Teams MVP, and Offensive Rookie of the Year, with Nick Walter matching the haul with Offensive Back of the Year, Offensive MVP, and overall Team MVP.

Daniel Adeyemi took home Youth Offensive MVP and Players’ Player of the Year, with Dylan Sparks collecting Overall Team MVP. Adam Ridgewell took home the Junior Team MVP, with Flynn Downing taking an awards double with Junior Rookie of the Year and Junior Players’ Player of the Year.
