It has been another busy week of sport across our corner of East London and Essex and, in a new feature, we take a look at some of our favourite stories from our editions over the past seven days in The Saturday Six.

A typical week can see our team reporting on anything from athletics, basketball, cricket, darts, football, hockey, ice hockey, karate, rugby, swimming, tennis and volleyball, from West Ham in the Premier League down to under-eights mini rugby in a local park.

But we always like to hear about any kind of sporting stories, so don’t hesitate to get in touch with your news.

1) Plenty of athletes in the Barking & Dagenham Post headed for warmer climes to take part in endurance races. Diarmuid Mac Donnell of Barking Road Runners was in Las Vegas for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon, while Dagenham 88s’ Timi and Sam Veerasamy took part in the Valencia marathon.
