For the second year running Leicestershire Under 12s team win Gold.
To give more players the opportunity to experience this competition we decided to take 2 teams so 8 Girls and 8 boys traveled to Sheffield to compete. In the first Leg of this competition we did only take one team who played exceptional well and won all their games , so going into this round was particularly exciting as they were in a good position and aiming for that Gold medal. The team were really up for it and showed their fighting spirit , never loosing a match all day ,there was some good individual performances but overall it was a fantastic team effort , congratulations to all the players .
The 2nd team had a hard group to play in , up against Yorkshire and Warwickshire who were strong opponents, but that did not deter the players they fought hard and got some good results , they went onto win the remaining matches ending up top of their group. It was definitely the right thing to do taking more players to this competition , they gained some good experience in a well organized competition. It was a fantastic weekend for the under 12 players . Well Done !
Team 1 – Sophie, Emily, Emma, Eve , Luke , Owen, Ayush, Lewis
Team 2 – Evie, Georgina, Grace, Ella, Freddie, Tom, Lucas , Mitesh.
Thanks to Amie and Chris for running the teams and Jo the shuttle monitor !
