Match Reports:

Bingham Stingrays 11 - Grantham 6.


The Mens Senior team continues to battle this season, with only 10 players for this home fixture, Bingham welcomed the return of Tim Lawson to the ranks for this local derby. Grantham fielded a full squad, playing off 13 players, all of whom were fast paced and agile in the water, complemented by their top scorer for the season Grantham looked strong and confident going into this match.

Stingrays with Joe Leveridge and John Musson leading the attack excelled in this very hard game, with Grantham getting players excluded over and over again for over zealous tackles and defending Bingham converted over and over again from the man up and quick breaks.  This season the junior players have started to come through the ranks at Bingham, with the addition of Callum Retzlaff, Jamie Sharp and also Paul Bleakley steeping up and showing excellent potential the team is excited about the future. The team although missing some of the old guard with James Sjtzier and Tony Petchell out with long term injuries has battled hard this season and were delighted with the win.

Matlock 11 – Bingham Stingrays 16

With N Welch Bingham's keeper away for this one, Bingham travelled to Matlock with 8 players. Although with a depleted team they showed strong heart, an excellent attitude and team performance. With stand in goal keeping from Carrington, Bendelow and Bleakeley they worked hard and albeit some of it wasn’t pretty with some unorthodox saves or none at all, the team battled hard on Wednesday night.

With Musson, Archer and Leveridge at the heart of the attack, Matlock's main pit attacker continued to cause problems for Carrington and Bendelow at the back and on occasion the game looked finely balanced.  What was excellent was the fitness showed from Leveridge and Musson covering back, whilst after just two games back Lawson is making great strides in his match fitness. The team is hoping to welcome Petchell back in the next month or so after his football related injury. 

Next match 1stOctober.
