Suffolk Girls Win Gold At The Championship and Suffolk Boys Win Bronze!
The ASA Junior Inter-County Championships was held at Basildon Sports Village on Saturday 1st March 2014 for players born in 1997 or later. The Suffolk Girls team included the following SC Torpedoes players:
- Phoebe Vale (in goal)
- Jess Temple
- Ellisse Morey
- Brooke Flower
- Faye Herman
- Erin Scarce
- Kirsty Logan
In the final match against Essex, Suffolk went 3:0 down but then after digging deep and managing to equalise, the Suffolk girls realised they could win if they played as team. It was an extremely close and exciting match but Suffolk girls closely marked Essex’s key player to gain possession and maintain their lead. The last 2 minutes were extremely tense until the final whistle when the noise level increased to a deafening level! The atmosphere was electric.
The Suffolk Boys team included our very own Conall Smyth, Josh Mclean and Matt Griggs. With Essex and Herts both having entered 2 teams into the competition, the boys had to play a total of 4 games but after beating Essex B and Herts B they came 3rd in the competition which is a brilliant achievement.
“I am sure that all that were present can remember every single detail about Saturday night and the victory of our girls in the inter county championships. The girls were absolutely brilliant and I can’t express the words as to how proud I am to have been the coach on such a brilliant occasion every single player played there part. Thank you again for your support and parenting which has produced such a fantastic group of young ladies.” Chris Cawood
