MAN OF THE MATCH – Cerys Brackenbury
Saturday, 8 January saw the 4th match of the season played at Castell Alun Leisure Centre in Hope. We fielded 4 teams who played in Divisions 5, 4 and 2.
Unluckily our D & C teams both started in Division 5 but luckily they weren’t drawn against one another. The D Team (Calum B, Jamie Cooper, Calum Artell & Sarah Jones) played Prestatyn and Llanferres B. They beat Prestatyn but lost to Llanferres with some good performances from Calum Artell & Sarah. They will stay in this Division for the next match.
The C Team (Charlotte Ince, Ann-Louise Barron, Gareth Ellis & Luke Williams) played Llanferres B & Prestatyn B and with good wins against both these sides will go up to Division 4 next time – well done to all of them.
Our B Team (James Hinchcliffe, Jack Southall, Cerys Brackenbury & Daniel Cooper) drew Castell Alun C & Llanferres A. They too won both games, playing particularly well against Castell Alun, and will go up to Division 3 next time.
The A Team (Calum Sant, Iwan Pullen, Matthew Jones & Eithan Johnson) were drawn against Connahs Quay A & Deeside A in Division 2 – this is where things start to get difficult! However they all played really well and drew against Deeside and beat Connahs Quay 5-1. Although only drawing against Deeside they gained more actual points in their individual games than Mold, the other team in the group who also drew one and won one so our A Team will be playing in Division 1 next time! Very well done to them and good luck – they’ll need it.
The next round will be held at Mold Leisure Centre this Saturday, 22 January hosted by Llanferres. From now on the matches are every fortnight with the venues of Flint (twice) and Kelsterten still to come.
Until next time,
(Junior Match Secretary)
