Junior prizegiving took place on the 13th April with the major awards being presented last Tuesday (29th April) at the AGM . It was pleasing to see a large representation from all squads on the last day of training and encouraging that several players and parents attended the AGM on Tuesday, 29th April.

With an increasing number of candidates to choose from the coaches had some difficult decisions to make in awarding the medals. A task which is proving more taxing each season. Therefore many congratulations to the following squad medal winners.

ROB DILWORTH (U18 Male Player of the Season)
A.McGREGOR/A.WHEELDON (U18 Most Improved Players)

The individual junior player trophies are awarded to those who represent not only a high level of skill but also embody the attitude, commitment and team spirit which makes them stand out within the club. Many congratulations to these award winners.

THERESE O’NEILL ..awarded.. Moodies Cup

The final junior award goes to the most successful junior team. Shaping a girls team from the many new faces in their first season in existence was always going to be a challenge. One which the new coaches and squad manager rose to with enthusiasm, dedication and resourcefulness. Taking the players through a rapid development programme ensured the girls completed the season second in the league of 11 teams, beating some of Hampshire’s top teams in their first season together. A great tribute to all the players, Tony Richards, Chris Hawkins and Jacquelyne Burnet.

Under 12 GIRLS ..awarded… Chilton Shield

Photos from the AGM are being uploaded onto the website imminently.

The strength in numbers and performance within our thriving junior section speaks for itself. Well done to you the players, our supportive parents and our volunteer coaches. We look forward to seeing you all in September to continue where we left off.

Wishing you an enjoyable summer.
