HEREFORD COUNTY MATCH REPORT Dec 2015

Hereford Juniors in a strong position.

The third session of the West Midlands region of the National Junior League took place on Saturday 12th December 2015 at Wood Green Academy in Wednesbury.

As was the case in round two, our squad was Jake Price, Matt Knight and Kyle Day.

Two excellent earlier “qualifying” rounds meant that we were now playing in Division 1 against the other top 5 teams in the competition.  We will also play against them again in the fourth and final session in January.

The first match was against Colebridge A and a 5-1 win was a great start.  3 of the games went to 5.

We then played Malvern who we had beaten 6-0 in the previous session.  They had strengthened their team this time and the match score ended up 5-1 to Hereford, with only one game won 3 straight. 

The third match was against Woodfield A and the first two games were very tight 5 enders with Jake and Matt just winning both.  These wins were to prove vital as we went on to win the match 4-2 with Jake and Kyle losing one a piece.

After lunch we played Sutton which resulted in a 5-1 win for Hereford.  Matt lost the one game to the opposition Number 1 12-10 in the fifth, which was to prove to be Matt’s only loss all day.

The final match was against Draycott A and the boys finished off a fantastic day with a 4-2 win.

Well done to all three boys, Jake winning 6/10 Matt 9/10 and Kyle 8/10.  Player of the day would have to be Matt with his only loss being 12-10 in the fifth.  Jake was a little disappointed with his results, but we have to remember that he was playing at No.1 and so played the tougher matches.  A very good overall team performance and they all worked hard to produce these results.

This is an excellent position for Hereford to be in at this stage, but it’s still all to play for in the last session.
