Water Polo Under 15 National Age Group Championship October 2016

Stretford ASC Water Polo team contributed 7 players last weekend to the Under 15 City of Manchester Water Polo A team, ultimately winning last weekend’s National Age Group Championships.  Congratulations to:
Callum Fookes (GK)
Thomas Yates
Chris Rhodes
Tom Roche
Luke Roche
Daniel Bentham
Ciaron Byrne

 

Thanks too to Judy for sending over this report:

The team won the early round matches by a good margin. The semi-final against Ealing was a rough and tough match although eventually the boys disciplined team play and grit enabled them to pull away to win again by a good margin. The final against Caledonia was tense with each team going a goal up at times to end the game play at 6-6. The match was then decided in a penalty shoot out. Stretford was again well represented at this point with Callum Fookes in goal saving Caledonia’s first shot giving Manchester the lead. Chris Rhodes, Thomas Yates, Tom Roche all successfully shot their penalties, leaving the final penalty for Luke Roche – a very stressful moment for all – and then big celebrations for the team as it sailed in.

Stretford was also represented in the City of Mancheter B team by Jerome Walker Sherriff and Harry Bentham. The B team had some tough matches and battled on in good spirits despite some disappointments. However, playing with the B team in the competition provided an opportunity for the younger players to experience the standard of play and atmosphere of a big competition event.
