Sunday 6th March – Under 14’s off to Sheffield for the second leg.
The team – Sameer, Harry, Joe, Teiren, Jess A, Tasmin, Izzy and debut for Sophie Watson.
The draws have been made and we have a tough one with both Cheshire and Lancashire 1 in our group.
First up Cheshire, most of the games were very close with a couple of them 15-14, some we took others Cheshire managed to take. We managed to win the match 8 -2, luck was on our side.
Next a really tough match against Lancashire 1, the team all fight hard in their games and again a lot of the matches are to the wire with four of the matches finishing at 15-14, this time luck was not on our side and Lancashire took 3 of those games. Lancashire took the match 7-3.
All Midlands group with Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Notts, a replay of the first round, can we win this group again, fingers crossed.
Some great skill showed from our players when playing Derbyshire and the only game we lost was another 15-14. Match won 9-1.
Now for Nottingham, in the last leg the score was 5-5, we managed to take it on points, can we improve this time around. The team seem to like taking the games to the wire today and getting as much play as possible with another couple of games at 15-14. Luck was on our side this time and we managed to win the match 9-1.
This group won – overall 4th place.
