Arena League 1st Round
The ‘A’ team travelled to Hertfordshire Sports Village, it proved a successful evening with us coming away victorious from an extremely close battle with Hatfield who we outscored by just 3 points. The team atmosphere was electric and the support from the balcony was equally appreciated. It was a pleasure to see such a young group of athletes lead by example, take ownership over their preparations and deliver some top quality performances when it counted for club.
The ‘B’ team had a great night in Dagenham claiming 6th position in what was a close battle between all 8 teams. Our ‘B’ team recently promoted came away with plenty of positives and look forward to challenging in round 2.
Well done to everyone who
competed and put the team first!
