We took a very young squad of boys and girls to play against Mid Sussex Marlins at the Dolphin Leisure centre pool in Haywards Heath on Sunday evening.
Mid Sussex had a large squad who were relatively inexperienced but very enthusiastic but we eventually recorded a 22-7 win. It was encouraging to see a number of the younger Worthing squad members make good contributions and everyone played well.
Squad in full; – Josh Coulson, Jamie Bond, Mattie Smith, Ruby Rosser, Ben Bolton, Joe Boot, Etham Foxwell, Maisie Standen & Henry Broadhurst.
Three Worthing girls featured in the South East under 14 team that won the bronze medal at the recent inter regional championships at Walsall.
The third place finish was achieved after a demolition of London region by a score of 16-5 when Caitlin scored a remarkable 10 goals with Grace adding 3 and Ruby 1. Not a bad effort from the Worthing girls, who contributed 14 of 16 goals in such a crucial match.
Caitlin was the second top scorer (by 1 goal) at the tournament with 24, Grace scored 9 and Ruby 1.
The region were delighted to finish in the top 3 at the competition and the three girls have all been complimented on the high standard of their play.
