Tyne takes sporting honours

16 March 2018
Personnel from the Fishery Protection Squadron competed for the coveted Salmon Trophy at the unit’s annual sports contest.

Members of HMS Tyne, Forth, Medway and Trent, took part in three flight-deck contests – bucket ball, Swedish long ball and football.

The teams competed as Batch 1 and 2, with Batch 1 winning the bucket ball 19-13.

Batch 2 hit back by winning the Swedish long ball 17-11, which meant that football would be the deciding sport.

Batch 1 took the victory with a last-minute goal to win 3-2.  

Commander of the squadron Cdr Sarah Oakley joined Captain Mine Warfare and Patrol Vessels, Capt Roger Readwin, in presenting the Salmon Trophy to HMS Tyne, a fitting final victory before she decommissions later this year.
