Our last juniors’ session of the year before the Christmas break was a fun tournament was organised by the older children, who decided on team size, picked teams and match duration to fit into the time available. We had a fantastic turnout of players and our new coach, Rosario Numerato, refereed.
The winning team was Ramsey, Josh, Michael, Nikola, Alex, Tia, Daniel and Alessandro, captained by Alex Mouratidis:
Ilyas Raja was especially commended. He has trained not only at Uxbridge, but with Enfield WPC and on Tuesdays with the Penguin men’s squad at LAC. His dedication has been rewarded by selection to play in the Penguin men’s team and he is delighted to have the opportunity.
Both most improved players, got this same award last year, so it is inspiring that they have gone on to improve even more.
Most improved younger player: Georgia Mouratidi
Most improved older player: Samir Garnie
Best new comer: Irakli Antidze
A big thank you to all the parents for providing the fantastic spread at the party. It wouldn’t have been possible without to great organisation by Sam. Big thanks alos go to Sue Burch for her calm admin skills at the training sessions throughout the year.
The party was made possible by Jack Petchey, who have subsidised the cost.
New year, new term
Training resumes on 7th January 2017 when we will be joined by coaches and boys from John Lyon school Harrow.
The Under 12 team compete in their first match in the London League on 8th January.
Happy Christmas everyone.
