Star of the week
This is your chance to blow your own trumpet and tell us about all the great things you've been doing on the sports field.

Tell us what you've been doing on the sports field

It doesn't matter how old you are or what level you play at or whether it's in football, darts or pony riding.

Every week we'll report on the best ones. Just send us an email using the form on the right, and if you can send us video or pictures we'd love to see them.

And it doesn't just have to be a goal, or a personal best - we want your funny stories too.

And judging by this week's inbox, there's plenty to shout about...


This week's star is Charlotte, who really has been making waves in the world of swimming.

Star of the Week Charlotte
Charlotte with one of her many medals

She won two gold and two silver medals as well as breaking the pool record for breaststroke in a gala on the Gold Coast in Australia, receiving her medals from a Queensland government minister.

Proud dad Paul tells us: "Charlotte now has 56 medals, six age championships and 15 pool records - all at the age of seven!"

Charlotte's ambitions are to represent Great Britain at London Olympics in 2012 (her dad is from Manchester) and represent Wales at the Commonwealth Games (her mum is from Port Talbot).

And special mentions to Victor and Mike.

Victor tells us: "This week I scored a hole-in-one at my local golf course, got 10 strikes in a row at my weekly pensioners ten-pin bowling game and beat my five-year-old grandson at table tennis. Not bad considering I'm a World War Two veteran!"

And how about this from Mike - he caught a 30lb pike night fishing on the Friday and then scored in his Saturday team's 8-0 trouncing of local rivals Dinamo Durrington.

He then scored two more in his Sunday side's 6-3 victory and then shot a very reasonable five-over on the golf course Sunday afternoon, all at the age of 50.

"Next week I'm going to try and equal the feat on a unicycle smoking a big cigar." And probably succeed.

Also impressing us this week are:

  • Duncan from Scotland managed to putt a birdie on the 445-yard 14th hole at Royal Dornoch. We're guessing it's not the easiest hole in the world

  • Joe from Yorkshire played his 150th match for his football club. During that time he has received 13 man-of-the-match awards.

  • Jordan writes in to tell us about Compton Primary school's football team, who played in their first ever tournament. They won seven out of eight games to finish first. Congratulations to you all, hopefully the first of many

  • Matthew tells us about his work helping disadvantaged rugby players. He recently interviewed Springboks coach Jake White, as well as former international Ed Andrews as part of the Boots For All programme.

    They have just sent the 5000th pair of boots for young rugby players in South Africa. Here's to another 5000 and more, keep up the good work Matthew.

  • Stu writes in with a "funny" tale about one of his team-mates during a rugby match for Reigate Grammar School's second team. "He got dump tackled in the first minute, a brutal tackle that left me crying on the ground. Very, very funny!" Not sure your friend thinks the same...

  • Kat is making waves - quite literally - on the water racing for St.Neots Rowing club. She won her first ever race on her 13th birthday by 3.2seconds (two lengths). Since then she has won three medals after just one year in the sport. Her all-time hero is James Cracknell

  • Joe won a chess tournament for his school when everyone thought he would lose. We're guessing his schoolmates will have a little more faith for his next game!

  • Stan tells us about his golf handicap which, five years ago, was 18. He set himself a target handicap of15 and last week he finally got it down to 14.8, the perfect Christmas present

  • Joe won his school tennis championship and will represent them at a local tournament before going to the Lancashire County Championships, which he also qualified for last year

  • Goals galore from Craig, who reckons a scout from Chelsea should get themselves down to Coventry to see him action for his four-a-side indoor football team called Woodlands IFC.

    He has scored 142 goals for his team in two seasons (58 first season and 74 second season) which is made the more impressive considering his team only play 15 games a season

  • Camogie club (Leitrim Co. Down) won the All-Ireland Junior Club Championship in hurling for the second successive year after beating Newmarket-On-Fergus (Co.Clare).

    Mairin was the star of the second half, scoring 3-3 and was awarded the player of the match award.

  • Sam recently won a major golf tournament in Hampshire the day before he was made captain of his football team

  • Khalid all the way in Afghanistan tells us about playing football for the Afghan youth team in Kabul, where he has been captain since 1999

  • Will drove the golf ball 120-yards

  • Christopher recently moved back to the UK from USA and scored his first try playing rugby for his school in Hampshire. He says: "I love being back home"

  • Rob sunk two holes-in-one in the same golf round

  • Not the best news from Pieter, who broke his right tibia playing rugby in a school Daily Mail Vase match. He is now in plaster for 12 weeks. Don't worry Pieter, the time will fly by...

  • Hadleigh has had a six-week trial for the Essex rugby team under-14s rugby team and has been picked at fly-half for a trial match

  • The good news is Nick scored a hat-trick in his team's 5-0 victory. Unfortunately the bad news is he broke his leg in the same game. Get well soon Nick

  • Ed from Devon was made the head of the pack for Newton Abbot rugby club

  • Archy tells us about his rugby team who haven't been doing too well recently, losing five out of five matches.

    He said: "We went into our final match of the season with nothing to lose and a lot of aggression. My first try came three minutes in from full-back and I scored two more to complete my first hat-trick. We played solid, reliable rugby and finished the game 54-0 up! Needless to say, we were ecstatic"

  • James won gold in the 50m breaststroke at the Midland Long Course Junior Championships and silver at 100m backstroke

  • Matt played some high intensity hockey for his club

  • A Brit living Stateside writes in to tell us about his athletics prowess. Bernard won the 100m in the New Mexico senior state games, as well as finishing second in the 100m

  • A nice story from Liam, who tell us: "It was in the middle of a cold and wet Yorkshire Cup final and I was playing rugby for the year above. The game was tied and in the last minute the opposition got a penalty and chose to go for goal.

    "But they missed it and I caught the ball and ran the full length of the pitch to win the game for my team. I was very pleased because I was playing with 15-year-olds

  • An e-mail from "Mr T" raving about St Aubyn's football team. The first team have played nine, won six, drawn two and lost only one game

  • Andrew scored three tries playing rugby

  • George writes in to say he "had the best rugby game of my life". Unfortunately he forgot to tell us why it was the best game of his life!

  • Jenn B scored four goals for her school's hockey team - but also managed to score an own goal, whoops!

    Keep up the good work everybody.
