London U19s win silver medal at the inter-area tournament

The London U19s have won the silver medal at the inter-area tournament held in Maidstone, Kent on Saturday 2nd December. In the tournament, the London team had victories over Cambridgeshire and Norfolk and a defeat against the eventual winners Kent.

Coach Davesh Patel said:

“The event was very well run and organised. I was extremely proud of the players and the way they performed. They showed great mental strength in some key situations and this allowed the players to keep their composure and get the results against Cambridge and Norfolk. The fixture against Kent was always going to be tough but we took the game to them taking a 6-3 lead and evidently surprised our opposition – I think it would be fair to say we “ruffled a few feathers”. Ironically, despite the eventual loss, the game against Kent was arguably our best all-round team performance. All in all a great day and I would say coming away with the Silver medal was an achievement to be proud about.

London korfball is going through a stage of regeneration with the number of junior participants starting to rise once more. If we can keep that going and combine this with some more regular county training I think this will stand us all in good stead for future tournaments.”

Well done to all the players, coach Davesh and manager Lisa Swain!
