Wendene Wanderers U11s 4 v 5 East Coast Warriors U11s
East Coast travelled to Bowthorpe to take on Wendene Wanderers in a hugely entertaining
football match. East Coast piled on some early pressure and got a succession of
corners, from one of them Shane Cox put a fine ball in for Josh Glister to knock in to put
East Coast into the lead. East Coast kept going forward and one a free kick, which
Shane Cox brilliantly struck into the top of the goal giving the keeper no chance.
Wendene to their credit kept going and always looked a threat to East Coasts
defence, from an East Coast throw, a bit of non communication caused the goal keeper to
pick the ball up resulting in an indirect free kick to Wendene, the East Coast defence
fell asleep and did not pick up the spare man just outside the box who coolly slotted the
ball home. With in minutes it was 2-2 with some more poor defending from East Coast.
In the second half East Coast looked lively and went back into the lead with a good move
resulting in Jacob Knowles stroking the ball home, but Wendene hit back straight away to
make it 3-3. Wendene kept pressing and were rewarded with another goal after some
more indecision in East Coasts defence. East Coast then struck back with a fine
strike from Shane Cox to make it 4-4. East Coast kept going and were rewarded when
Nick Blake put a ball through to William Parker who exquisitely chipped the ball over the
keepers head to give East Coast their first win of the season.
COLOURS OF SALVATION
Jim Bailey and his Spicy Camels brought their "Colours of
Salvation" - family fun road-show to Sheringham Primary School last Sunday.
From the flaming bible opening to the closing song, the children and adults who
packed the school hall were enthralled by this larger than life comedian-evangelist and
his off-the-wall brand of humour. With the help of Julie his assistant, he led the
audience in lively versions of a variety of Christian songs, including: As for Me
and My House, and Colours of Salvation, which he wrote himself; as well as a new House
version of Lord of the Dance. The entire audience were soon responding by dancing
and joining in with the actions. The Spicy Camels brought their own humour, as
believably argumentative dromedaries, and the Grandpa ventriloquism act was so funny,
Jim's blatantly moving lips were soon forgiven and forgotten.
But it was his Christian message, interwoven with conjuring and more upbeat music, which
captivated the children, and Jim left the audience in no doubt that the love of Jesus was
at the heart of his high-energy show, as he skillfully combined his life-changing theme
with a great deal of comedy and excitement . He fully involved members of the
audience in everything he did, and his unique style of humour brought laughter from all
Jim Bailey is a father, minister, worship leader and song-writer, who has been leading
children's worship for 15 years. He also trains others in childrens ministry, and is
the world's only professional singing escapologist. He certainly scored a hit in
Sheringham last Sunday.
The Roadshow formed part of a weekend of activities centered around the area of the
school, with Sheringham Baptist Church's "Gravity" caravan being based on the
Cooper Road playing field for the weekend. A highly popular jewelry-making workshop
was held on Saturday afternoon, and a steady stream of people enjoyed tea and coffee as
local young people enjoyed sports, games, and other activities on the field. Daniel
Beckett, youth worker at the Baptist Church said "It's clear everyone has had a
brilliant time, and we've enjoyed meeting the people who live round here. We can't
wait for the next chance we get to come back and run a similar weekend."
