West Midlands Under 14s Boy’s and Girls in Inter Regions


West Midlands under 14 boys 2019

Silver for the boys and 9th for the girls in a hard fought u14's Inter regional competition in Walsall

The U14 Boys Inter-regionals were held at Walsall Gala Baths.

Having won all three of their matches on Saturday, the West Midlands boys secured a place in the 1-3rd playoffs on Sunday.  A hard first game on Sunday morning against North West Tigers, saw the team lose their first match of the competition.  This was followed by a tremendous 7-1 win against London. So it was all down to the final match between North West Tigers and London.  A nail biting match, but eventually North West Tigers won, which meant Silver for the West Midland boys.

Tobias Ishaque, Tadhg Perry, Dennis Buhaesca, Henry Trevis, Peter Mellor, Oliver Salimbeni Moffat, Toby Liu, Archie Brewer, Will Coleman, Max Spraggs and Elias Papaioannou.  Coaches:  Drazen Videc, Gary Tonks and John Halstead,  TM’s Jo Ishaque and Terri Halstead

The U14 girls Inter-regionals took place at Walsall Gala Baths on the 30th November and 1st December.

The small West Midland’s girls squad had very little experience of playing together, so started slowly on the Saturday. However, as each game past they went from strength to strength giving the favourites, North West Thunder a really close game. On the Sunday they returned with renewed determination and in the first game they beat the South West Sharks. They won their play-off game convincingly to finish ninth.

The team was:
Holly Clark, Charlotte Turpin, Isabella Balzaretti, Ameilie Perkins, Isabella Ibbs, Ella Simms, Gemma Jenkins, Olivia Merryweather. Coaches: Hannah Hinton, Emma Smith. TM Claire Clark
