Muswellbrook quintet produces the goods at seventh annual Sunnyfield Indoor Sports Day in Tamworth

Fab 5 brings home gold

A TALENTED group of people from Muswellbrook certainly made their mark, on debut, at the seventh annual Sunnyfield Indoor Sports Day at Tamworth on Wednesday.

The quintet - Rodney, Makayla, Hayley, Ethan and Sean - were accompanied by support workers Beckie, Cheryl and Jessica at the competition, which is coordinated by the New England disability services provider.

Rodney led the way by securing gold and Ethan collected a bronze medal, but all the entrants were winners in Sunnyfield's eyes.

The event is a yearly highlight for participants, many of whom travel from as far afield as Muswellbrook, Narrabri, Gunnedah, Armidale, Inverell and Glen Innes.

"People in the New England region and beyond are always excited about the Sunnyfield sports day," regional manager New England Ada Maughan said.

"It supports those with disability to mingle, get out there and have some fun while improving their health.

"In 2019, it was terrific to welcome competitors from our site in Muswellbrook for the first time.

"It's just getting bigger and better every year."

The fun-filled occasion hosted more than 120 people from the New England and Hunter regions.

They took part in both individual and team events such as javelin, soccer, egg and spoon races and a sports day favourite - the giant tunnel ball race.
