Seniors and Youth
First of all I would like to comment on a brilliant night at Halow last night! THREE matches and THREE fantastic wins – WELL DONE Teams 4,5 & 6 - Joyce Barton,Molly Fozzard,Hannah Hogan, Emma-Louise Wacey, Nichola Brichieri-Colombi, Wendy Chambers, Kate Pink (Team 4), Nada Tadros, Lily Fakile, Anita Griffiths, Megan Williams, Tegan Lintonbon-baker, Kate Henshall, Hannah Bishop (Team5), Reah Leanne Norris, Alice Miles, Katie Miles, Lizzie Francis, Emma Kennett, Estelle Williams, Jess Barclay (Team 6). An excellent conclusion to the first half of the winter season.
Our teams are doing well at Harlow. Team 1 = 2nd, Team 2 = 5th, Team 3 = 3rd, Team 4 = 3rd, Team 5 = 5th, Team 6 = 5th.
At Stortford Team 1 were celebrating their first WIN on Sunday (they have picked up points in most games but just been “pipped” at the post when it has come to winning). Team 2 = 3rd, Team 3 = 1st, Team 4 = 2nd, Team 5 = 4th, Team 6 = 7th. So, again most teams doing a great job and getting better/stronger.
Herts League Team 1 = 1st (I believe), Team 2 = 3rd but still in with a shout of promotion – Keep going girls!
ER = TOP of the table. Playing so well and with the inclusion of several of our talented youngsters i.e. Amber Moore, Becky Allen, Megan Pointer, Cam Brown and hopefully Hanae Sbai once she is fit again, the future of the club is looking GREAT. Congratulations ER squad. Read More
Holly has been with Crosskeys, for approximately 6 years. In that time, she has progressed from a very good Youth player, to an outstanding Senior. She is a great role model for younger members and extremely loyal to the Club. While still at University, Holly would travel long distances to play for the East Region Squad. She is a real character, very well liked and known for her kindness and humility.
Caitlin has been with the club for several years. She is a very loyal member of the club, and although lacking in confidence at the start, she is now a regular team player. She works very hard both at training and in matches, playing any position required. She is also very encouraging to her peers.
Lilly has been with the club for a few years now. She is friendly, sociable and a pleasure to coach.
She is very reliable , trains hard, constantly improving her play. She has a regular position in her year squad and is always available for matches, and will play in any position.
Tournament Winners at Poole 2016
Poole had always been a successful tournament for Crosskeys so coming back each year made it even more challenging.
This year, as in the past we took a mixed year group of U15/U16. A very early start always makes us a little sluggish in the first game and when I saw we were up against the mighty Tameside I thought perhaps our first game may not go our way.
Tameside as always were energetic and a confident team but straight from the start we came out fighting, putting in practice of Amanda Newton’s fantastic session this week of dynamic play and 100% commitment with dictation of space. A great start with a 6-3 win. Our second game against Birmingham based Ryland were again a tough team with 2 exceptional players. However a slight change of players in centre court didn’t rattle us and we kept moving the ball in every channel to create space for us to move onto. Another successful win of 8-3. Read More
Yrs 8 and 9 at Poole 2016
Well what a fantastic day had by all. We were trying something new and took a mixed under u13&14 team With this in mind we really did not know what to expect. We had players playing out of position and a team that had never played together before. Well what can I say girls you done yourselves proud. You got better and better as the day went on and the highlight of the day was betting Hawkes. 6 games played, 3 games won and some very close losses.
Team – Beth Parker, Freya Henshall, Summer Wimbleton, Caitlin Best, Jennifer Johnson, Beth BC, Greta Ollandini, Leah Shipp & Jess Parkinson.
A special well done to Beth who played GS instead of GD – you done a good job pairing with Freya and delivering some real good movement. The mid court was covered by Caitlin Beth BC Summer Greta & Jennifer with varying different combos and great defensive work in the defensive circle by Leah GD and Jess GK .
I hope that your first Poole tournament was enjoyable – I think we had fun.
Thanks to Sarah Henshall, Sue Bishop, Ruth Parkinson, Martin & Kirsty for coming and supporting. Brilliant day - Sarah Parker Melanie Boulton.
A fantastic training session enjoyed by Yrs 7 to 12
