DREAMS - LAST TOURNAMENT OF THE SEASON!

A great end to the season for the U11s on Saturday 6 July

at the Dreams tourney.

The girls stormed through their first round unbeaten

and with some impressive score lines -

54 goals for and only 2 conceded.

We again stormed through the regrouping in the

afternoon, an we were down to 7 players

following an injury.

A special mention must go to Bea Painter who stepped up

as WA to cover this and played really well out of

her usual position.

We met Eagles in the semi-finals and it was a very close match,

drawing 5-5 and extra time! Sadly we lost by 2 goals in that

extra time but the girls put out the performance of the day.

I could not have been prouder of their attitude, skill and

stamina in the blazing sun.

This team finished on a high and there is plenty more

to come this talented bunch!

Coaches players

go to Flo Swanton for her versatility and impact on

the court an Emily Watson for her consistency, turnover

rate and teamwork. Another great day mini Matrix!

Tash Park, U11 Coach


THE PONTINS U15 EXPERIENCE!

Very proud of our very young U15 team who made

it all the way to the Cup Semi-Finals.

Top 4 at the strongest junior open competition

in the country is a great way to finish a very

successful summer these girls.

To be up there with Poole and Tameside can't be a

bad place to be!


THE PONTINS U11 EXPERIENCE!

What a fantastic weekend our young Matrix players had at Pontins 2017.

The team consisted of 6 U11s and 2 U10s who represented our club amazingly well, We had a tough group on Saturday and finished 4th in the group.

This led to us playing in the Cup section

on the Sunday in a group consisting of two Oldham teams

and Abbey . We qualified into the group in 4th place and

came out 2nd after two fantastic wins against Oldham B and Abbey Flyers.

We lost to the eventual Winners, Oldham.

Our performance secured us a place in the Quarter Finals where we met a tough Turnford A team.

We gave them a great match and eventually lost 7-4. 

We finished in the top 8 out of 39 teams which was a testament

to the players versatility, determination and skill.

As ever, their performances attracted praise from umpires and other coaches.

Off court, the girls had a brilliant weekend swimming, theme

parking, arcading and generally team bonding!

I really struggled to think if a player of the tournament without any of our usual defenders and yet our turnover rate was phenomenal.

Coaches players go to the defending unit, so well done to

Charlotte Taylor (the Lean), Grace Durand (the Interceptor),

Flo Swanton (the Flyer) and Isabel Marriot (the Brick Wall) .........

you amazed me this weekend.

U11 Coach, Tasha Park
