The under 11yrs travelled to Sheffield this weekend to compete in the 2nd leg of the Primary Midway League.
They were standing in 4th position after the first league held in Nov. What a great days Badminton !!!
And what a difference 4 months makes , all the players have improved so much and after fighting hard and playing really well all day managed to come a very creditable 2 place.
They won matches v Yorkshire 8-2 . Cheshire 2nd team 8-1 . Cheshire 1st team 7-3. Derby 6-4 and had a very exciting match against the even eventual winners Warwickshire ending in a 5 all draw ,unfortunately loosing by 6 points, therefore just missing out on the medal places, ending 3rd overall .
We all agreed that the whole team deserved a great big pat on the back , they never stopped trying all day.
The team are looking forward to their next match v Warwickshire on April 19th. They are a lovely bunch of players and pleasure to be with.
The Team was : Owen, Luke, Ayush , Lewis , Tilly, Eve, Emily, Emma and Sophie.
