HEREFORD JUNIORS NEW NJL SEASON

HEREFORD JUNIORS MADE A PROMISING START TO A NEW NATIONAL JUNIOR LEAGUE SEASON.


After winning the West Midlands region of the National Junior League last year, it was agreed that we would enter the Bristol region this year.   The distance to travel is about the same and it would mean different players to play against, having played in West Midlands for several years now.

Only 6 teams have entered the Bristol region and so we were very unsure as to the standard to expect.

The first session took place at Bristol Academy of Sport on Sunday 16th October 2016.  Our team was Jake Price, Matt Knight and Zak Weaver.

Unfortunately due to an administrative error one of the teams did not turn up and so we were down to 4 matches.

The first match was against Cirencester and the match score was 5-1 to Hereford, Zak losing the one, but this was in 5.

The second match was against Cleave and Claverham who had 3 strong players and resulted in a 5-1 loss. Jake played well to win the one game.  The score line did not do the match justice as only one game was three straight and four were lost over five sets.  Longest match of the day was Matt against the No. 3 which he lost 22-20 in the fifth, with quite a crowd watching!

Next up was Stroud and it was back to winning ways with a 5-1 score line.  Zak was unlucky not to win his first game, losing 12-10 in the fifth.

The final match was against Table Tennis Daily with Hereford finishing on a high with another 5-1 win.  It was good to see a young defender playing for the opposition and although Jake and Matt’s attacking play was too strong, it won’t be long before he starts making a name for himself.

Well done to all three and in particular to Zak, playing in this event for the first time.
