Juniors Battle at Inter-County Stage 1
Last weekend saw the start of the annual Inter-County competition which sees teams from all over the country do battle to claim the crown of the UK’s best in each age group. Middlesex had a total of 4 girls and 4 boys teams competing from under 11 through to under 17. For many it was the first time out as county players and the competition was tough for many. Unfortunately there were only a few wins for the U15s and U17s boys with everyone else loosing each team match. However every single player battled hard, kept their spirits up and showed true sportsmanship throughout. The coaches and parents were proud of the performances but recognising we have a long way to go to shape up to our neighbouring counties.
Despite the losses all the teams had a great day some even jumping for joy at the prospect of having more tough matches on the day. A big thank you to all the Middlesex coaches and parents who travelled and got up early to take the players to the matches and support them.
