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, what level you play at, or whether it's 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.

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

With the festive season in full swing, it's good to read plenty of e-mails telling us about your exploits in the world of sport.

This week's star is Martin, who hasn't quite grown up since his schooldays, which is only a good thing...

He writes: "When I was a young boy at school I used to look forward to playing rugby in PE lessons. I am now 31-years old and no longer play much rugby but being an avid fan of Wigan Warriors rugby league, I watch it as much and as often as I can.

"I decided to go up to my local playing fields (alone I may add) and using a football goal post, kicked a few conversions from different parts of the field.

"This is something I never tried at school as we didn't have any rugby posts. I was quite surprised when I managed to kick a good few over the crossbar and, on a windy day, got a couple over from the touchline too.

"It must have been amusing to onlookers to see this fully grown idiot, running the best part of a football field and then throwing himself over a make-believe tryline and celebrating my score!

"I was covered from head-to-toe in mud. Guess some of us never grow up!"

Also impressing us this week are:

  • Great golf story from Jason, who has never had a hole-in-one - until now. He was giving it a fair performance at his local club until the last hole when he shanked his ball into the trees.

    "I was looking at least a bogey, but then a miracle happened. I decided to take another tee off shot, taking off two shots from my score in the process. I hit a lovely, crisp shot off the centre of my clubface straight into the hole.

    "I was greeted by a round of applause from my mates! It was weird though because I only got a par!"

  • Rebecca has been chosen to represent the Bank of Scotland athletics team running the 200m and 300m

  • Ryan recently moved from the wing to fly-half for his rugby team and immediately made an impression. He scored two tries out of his team's total of five, converting every single one of them too.

  • Naomi tells us about two clubs in Calderdale who are working hard to promote rugby union and rugby league in the West Yorkshire area. Unfortunately she forgot to tell us the names of the two clubs, but congratulations to all the girls who have worked so hard

  • A monster kick from Jim who tells us about his heroics in a local derby rugby match. With his team losing 12-10 in the dying seconds, he stood behind a ruck, yelled to the scrum-half for the ball and drop-kicked the winning three points somewhere between the 22-metre and 40m line. Jonny Wilkinson? Nowhere!

  • However, it wasn't all glory for Lorn, who was playing rugby for West of Scotland. He tells us: "For the first time in a game I tried to kick the ball, it was all looking good until I kicked it. It went flying sideways and almost behind me. It was so embarrassing"

  • Marc has been making an impression playing rugby, transferring clubs and taking up three new positions. He also made his first appearance for the school basketball team

  • Penyrheol year eight hockey team played their first match and drew 0-0

  • Chris scored a try playing rugby for Cheshire under-16s rugby club - but unfortunately dislocated his shoulder in the process. Get well soon

  • Peter from Ireland hit a hole-in-one from 178 yards away at the Greencastle Golf Club

  • Calum says he will be the next Bruce Lee after getting his black belt in karate

  • Lots of rugby antics from Jacob, who scored two tries and two conversions for his school team in a one-sided 40-7 victory. In another game he scored a hat-trick and won the man-of-the-match award

  • Alex scored his first try for Peterborough under-9s against Wisbech. Unfortunately his dad Simon missed it as he had to look after his younger brother! But according to Alex, "it was a scorcher, sidestepping the opposition before putting the ball in the corner!"

  • Jason and his brother Ross played rugby for the Chase Old Boys against the current Chase first XV. Despite losing 24-5, Ross set up brother Jason for a score in the corner for the Old Boys.

    And to make it a real family affair, other brother Ryan prepared and cooked the post match food!

  • Ryan scored two crackers from the outside of the box for his local football team Mytchett Boys, helping them to a 9-2 victory

  • Sam recently received the gold award in the Duke of Edinburgh scheme, as well as making a contraption that lets him run and drink water at same time

  • Captain Matty scored a hat-trick in his football team's 6-0 victory. He was voted man-of-the-match too

  • Eddie writes in telling us about his football team Middleton Boys. Despite playing some great football they found themselves second from bottom in their table.

    But they've turned things around, winning their last few games including a 7-0 win over arch rivals Swinton Boys

  • Liam scored a thumping penalty to win the Premier League cup for his football team Bowerham Bombers. He dedicated his goal to his grandmother, who sadly passed away the day before

  • Salmaan scored his first goal for his football team in their 2-1 victory. His team-mates then messed his hair up to celebrate

  • Amber finished a close second in the High Peak cross country trials and will represent the district in the Derbyshire championships in January

  • Brandon scored four tries on the wing for his school Merchiston under-15s B in their 50-29 victory over Forrester Rugby Club. Merchiston have only lost one game so far this season

  • Chris scored a goal playing football at school. Good on you Chris, especially as he usually doesn't play sport. Hope you will now!

    Well done to everyone and keep those e-mails flying in.
