On Feb 28th the under 11 team travelled to Sheffield to play in the second leg of the Primary midway league. Our first game was against Yorkshire 2 which was good practice , the team settled in well and we came away with a 10-0 win. The next two matches went our way a 9-1 win v Cheshire and 10-0 victory v Northumberland , William Sewell showed a great performance in this match 8 – 3 down fighting hard to take the game 21-17 punching the air as he played.Next the deciding match was against Warwick who had been watching us play all day , this was going to be hard match , we managed to reach 4 games all with a cracking match played by Freddy and Tom , just the mixed to go, these last 2 games proved to be just to tough as the more experienced Warwick players took both games and we lost 6-4 . Our last match was v Yorkshire 1 for 3rd and 4th play offs . Yorkshire had 3 strong boys so soon won all their games , the girls pulled back with Sophie and Abbie winning again , unbeaten all day , a great experience for young Abbie , Mitesh and Abbie then had a very close game just loosing 20-21, so the match ended up 6-4 again. Our final position over the two legs was a very creditable 4th place. Some good partnerships were formed and all the players played their hearts out I was proud to manager the team. A big thanks to Karen for her help .
The Team – Tom , Freddie, Mitesh, Lucus , William , Sophie, Abbie, Carly and Emily.
