London U11 squad announced

Here’s a message from the London U11 squad organisers:

“Firstly, we would like to thank you for bringing your child along to trial for the u11 London squad which will be playing in Harrow on Sunday 21st January 2018.

The level of Korfball being played on Saturday was very high, and the children should all be extremely proud of the effort that they have put in.

Unfortunately the process of having to let children and parents down is not very nice, but I hope you all respect our decision that we are trying to do the best for the squads that we are putting in.  Thankfully this year we have again been allowed to put in two teams, as having to only take a single team squad from the 32 that trialled would be awful.

We will therefore be taking the following children to the tournament to represent the London Squad:

Naia Chugh – Trojans

Isabel Grace King – Hayes

Niamh Sutherland – Hayes

Sienna Moore – Bromley

Emi Patel – Bromley

Emily Walker – Bromley

Kushala Karunaratne – Bromley

Megan Talbot – Nomads

Libby Thomas –  Nomads

Millie Walsh – Nomads

 Brandon Pang – Trojans

Lewis Court – Bromley

Charlie Pickup – Bromley

Jack Davis – Bromley

Jack Wisbey – Hayes

Joe Wisbey – Hayes

Oliver Warren – Hayes

Woody Holden – Hayes

Caleb Keith – Hayes

Brayden Russell – Hayes

James Rampling – Hayes

Jack Walsh – Nomads

Jack Talbot – Nomads

Oskar Gromadka – Nomads

As mentioned we have 2 further training sessions set up on 9th December and 13th January – these will be crucial to getting the squad more practiced and working as teams so we hope that all those selected will be able to attend.

Well done again to all the children that took part Saturday and we look forward to seeing them in competitions throughout the year. 

For those that have been selected please can you respond via email to accept your child’s position in the team and provide a mobile telephone number for each parent for contact purposes.

 Thank you

 Claire, Karen & Natalie”

Competition meeting minutes 13.5.2017

The minutes of the competition meeting held on Saturday 13 May can be found here.

London seniors finish fourth in the inter-area tournament

The London seniors have finished fourth in the inter-area tournament held in Banbury on 20th May.

After winning their group and their quarter-final, the London side lost out to Kent in the semi-finals before losing to the North-West side in the 3rd/4th play-off.

Well done to the team and thanks to coach Liam Clarke and manager Sarah Halpin. A team photo is below.

 

Trojans win the England Korfball League title

Trojans have won the England Korfball League title for the tenth consecutive year.

In the play-offs held in Crawley, Trojans defeated Kingfisher 21-14 in the semi-final before beating Norwich Knights 30-17 in the final.

Meanwhile, Bec finished third, beating Kingfisher 15-8 in the 3rd/4th play-off.

Congratulations to both London sides!

London U19s finish third in the inter-area tournament

The London U19s finished third in the inter-area tournament held in Croydon on Sunday 30th April. London were victorious over Norfolk 1 and Norfolk 2 but were beaten by Kent and Cambridgeshire.

Coach Ben Rivers has kindly provided a summary as follows:

“A mixed day or results on Sunday with 2 wins and 2 losses. The team played well in parts but were beaten by superior shooting and movement against a strong Kent team whilst Cambridge always managed to stay ahead of us. Dispatching both Norfolk teams was pleasing and an improvement on last year. With the majority of the team playing next year there’s a good chance the title will return to London.”

Well done to all the players and thanks to coach Ben, manager Lisa Swain and all the people who helped out or refereed on the day.

A picture of the London squad is below.
