U17 & U20 Athletes Of The Match Initiative

Rhian Evans
Jack Haughton
Jamie & Thomas

The club has launched a new league award initiative this year for our U17 & U20 athletes in the Youth Development League. Congratulations to Athlete of the Match Award winners for the YDL match at Exeter: Jack Houghton & Rhian Evans for their top points scoring efforts & team spirit. Their efforts were recognised in match 2, following on from Jamie Holland and Thomas Payne in round 1. Who will it be in round 3?


The team are in a very tightly bunched league table going into the 3rd match at Cardiff on Sunday 30th June. They need a top 3 finish there to go forward to the area final match and a chance to qualify for the UK team final. The U17 & U20 team are doing extremely well this year, not only in terms of performance but also in participation numbers in age groups where we have struggled in the recent past. Congratulations and thanks must go to all our U17 & U20 Men & Women, as well as their team managers and coaches for retaining so many athletes in these key age groups. 


It has been a very, many years since the team have progressed to a regional or national final, we know with a good turnout in match 3 they have the talent to progress, the very best of luck to the whole team.
