If you can write reports like this then send them in
There are journos at the Academy looking over their shoulders after the first batch of your match reports came flooding in.

In fact the standard in this first week was so high that rather than just have one winner we are publishing the top three reports.

Each of them will be receiving a Sport Academy goodie bag and you too could be a winner if you send us a report.

Our first winner was Lucie (16) with this amusing tennis report...

It was a cold October morning, but there was something in the air.

As the four veterans on the second court struggled with their serve-volleying, two young girls stepped onto the rain swept fourth court.

Carla served first with a total of four double faults - it didn't look promising.

The match slowly improved, with both girls showcasing their lack of skills to the full extent, the missed smashes were enjoyed by all!

The highlight was undoubtedly the rally involving the seven volleys and the various squeals from both girls.

Finally Lucie came away the 6-4 winner, needless to say the veterans were very impressed.

Our second winner, Ben (13), came up with this report of his own amazing performance...

After a disappointing first 35 minutes the team from Woburn are now in a penalty shoot-out.

First up is captain Darren, he walks up to the ball and fires it in to the top corner, the crowd goes wild.

Seven penalties later the teams are level at 4-4 and man of the match Ben has the pressure on his shoulders of winning the league cup final.

If he scores this it will take him to a total of 43 for the season.

Taking his time he strides up to the ball, then he drills an unstoppable shot into the roof of the net. Game over, Woburn Lions have won it!!!

And our third winner was Nicholas (11). Here is an extract from his report of Wrexham's LDV Vans Trophy victory over Huddersfield.

The second half started brightly with a penalty appeal by Wrexham turned down by referee Mr Penn.

Finally the deadlock was broken on 62 minutes. A corner by Wrexham's Darren Ferguson was met with Stephen Robert's unstoppable volley.

For the next 10 minutes Wrexham controlled the game until Dwayne Mattis powered through the defence to slot the equaliser past the keeper.

The match seemed to be going into extra time when Stephen Thomas' free-kick bulged the net to send last years section finalists out of the LDV Cup.
