Star of the week
It's your chance to blow your own trumpet and let us know about all the things you've been doing on the sports field.

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

Age is of no concern to us, 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.

The Academy inbox has been flooded with news about an unbelievable range of sporting activities this week.

From Thai boxing to lacrosse, netball, rugby sevens, go-karting, darts and even a spot of water-polo. You guys have done it all.

There are some hot contenders this week, but we've plumped for Tony, who has been a surprise star on the fairways. He even surprised himself!

Tony only took up golf last September and on New Years day he decided to challenge himself by taking on three others - three very experienced players Tony tells us.

And amazingly he parred 12 of the 18 holes and ended up beating his rivals by eight shots.

A superstar in the making. Keep it up Tony. And don't tell too many people or nobody will want to play you!

Also impressing us this week are:

Karen loves her Thai boxing
Karen (right) loves her Thai boxing

  • Karen has sent in a brilliant picture of her in action in the boxing ring and caught the evidence on camera.

    She tells us she is the one on the right, which by the looks of things means she's in a much better position than her opponent's.

    All Thai boxers had better be warned - Karen clearly packs a hard punch.

  • Will has told us about an U-14 rugby match he was heading to for his team Devizes RFC.

    It was postponed so they arranged an alternative game on a smaller pitch. And Will - not known for his scoring abilities - ended up with three solo tries.

  • Daniel went to David Beckham's Academy and was told by the great man he was "one of the best youngsters he had seen".

    Daniel tells us England's skipper liked his free-kicks because they were "like his". Way to go Daniel!

  • George plays for the U-14 Sheffield Steelers lacrosse team and they've just scored their 200th goal from only 12 games.

    They remain unbeaten this season in the Northern Junior League.

  • Clive's U-12 rugby team in Streatham are also unbeaten and they've been chosen to play in the Rugby Sevens tournament.

  • Helen has competed in her first British Tour tennis event this week and got to the final of the qualifying tournament.

    She beat the number two seed along the way. She also won the LTA Grade 3 Open Tournament three weeks ago - her very first Open title.

  • John scored two "fabulous" goals against a 60-year-old keeper called Brian but still lost 5-4 when Peter (aged over 50 apparently) scored the winner in the last seconds.

    John says he's as "sick as a parrot".

  • Tom from Ludlow has played at all levels of club & county golf at junior level and has just been chosen to be coached by top coach Butch Harmon. Tom has also represented Wales.

  • Daniel's football team played in a football tournament, fulfilling a life long ambition of treading on the Goodison Park turf.

  • Richard tells us about his victory at the WPMF World Thai boxing Title in Thailand last October.

    He's heading back there in February to defend the title against the number one contender.

  • Hiro from Belgium was losing in a final of a tennis tournament 4-6, 2-6, 4-5 and she managed to save three match points - and went on to win!

  • Jag boasts his school rugby team are the best in the country!! They've played 14, won 12 and lost 2, scoring over 350 points.

  • Robert took his sister to her netball practice and thought he'd give it a go. Two weeks later and he's just played his first competitive match, winning 25-8.

  • Alistair is the star of the darts - he's just scored his first 180. He's now looking to join a darts club.

  • Jonny scored his first goal for his hockey team - it was the winning goal as well!

  • Willy captained his water-polo team to victory against the touring Germans!

  • William won the go-kart gold cup for the U-17s at his local club in Bedfordshire.

  • Jacob's U-13 rugby team in Ireland hadn't won all season and were up against their dreaded rivals who were unbeaten.

    Jacob caught the ball after kick-off, played a dummy switch and tumbled over the line to score as an opponent dived in to tackle him.

    Poor Jacob ended up in hospital with a broken ankle but he's delighted after his team won 27-17!

  • James saved a penalty for his team Balloch Eastfield, managed to get sent off but still won 8-6! What a game!

    So well done to everybody and keep telling us about your efforts. And don't forget the photos!
