2005 Born Invitational Tournament Report

On Saturday evening the coaches left Marlborough to travel to Basingstoke where our junior team were playing in an invitation tournament.
This was an event for boys and girls born 2005 & younger and we decided that we would take a very young team, many who were making their competitive debut for the club.

The team played three matches and the results were as follows; –

Wiltshire County; – lost 0-7
Basingstoke; – won 7-1

Kingston; – drew 3-3

The Wiltshire team were much older but we never gave up and the squad improved game by game.

It was really good to see so many juniors playing their first “proper” matches and the potential of all of the squad was clear to see. We had a squad of 12 players and only 3 were born in 2005 and as a result the majority will be available again next year.

We also had two of our girls playing for the SE region team in the other half of the draw and both Lillie Standen and Keira Byford played well.
