U16's PRE LOCKDOWN SHOWDOWN

04 Nov 2020

This week, before the lockdown came into effect, the Silverbacks U16's (and a few U18's), came together for a competitive match.

Not only did we have a great array of young Silverbacks, all playing their socks off, we had 2 qualified Table Officials (Lynne & Corrine), Each team had an expert coach, Pete Daines (Club Chairman) & Kolby Pistak (1st Team Captain). And the whole match was also under the full scrutiny of 2 Wessex & Silverbacks referee's (Including the Wessex Chairman himself, Tim Routledge & Club Secretary Alex White).

All of the juniors gave it their all, with the lead switching from team to team. It went right up to the final whistle, but Coach Pete's team pipped it by 3 points to take the match 51-48.  

None of this would have been possible without the time & dedication from the players & volunteers who helped, but a huge thanks needs to go to Corrine Brooks, who was the mastermind behind the whole idea.  Watch this space, maybe there will be a rematch in the future.
