Whatever sport you play or competition you enter, whether as an individual or a team, there’s no better feeling than being a winner.
And judging by these smiling faces, that’s just how these young people were feeling when they were pictured by the Gazette’s photographer during the 1990s.
As well as Boy Scouts and Sea Scouts, there’s Girls Venture Corps Air Cadets from across South Tyneside – all of them flying high after scooping trophies and plaques for their achievements.
Were you one of the winning groups?
What can you tell us about the youngsters pictured and the groups they so successfully represented?
