Weekly Update 22nd November 2017

NOTE: NO TRAINING IN NEWPORT THIS WEEKEND

Let us start by congratulating both the Seniors and Juniors for their efforts in the Bristol and West Water Polo League this year.

The Seniors have not only stayed up in Division One of the league, which was their aim, but they achieved 4th place, (out of 8) which is the highest positioned team that does not also play in the British National League. Well done to you all, a great effort for your first year in Division 1.

The Juniors finished in their highest position since they joined the BWWPL, finishing 4th in the league, assuming that the BWWPL Committee awards us the points for Devonport cancelling on us twice.

The Juniors played and beat South Gloucester last Saturday in the BWWPL winning 20 – 6 in a game which saw a lot of pool time for the 2003’s and below. Last Sunday, Exeter arrived with only 6 players, the rest of their team being stuck on the motorway. We played anyway, giving Exeter 3 of our players to boost their team. This match resulted on another win for the Juniors 21 – 12.

The Seniors were due to play Exeter Seniors last Sunday as well, however they called off due to lack of players. The points were awarded by the BWWPL committee to us.

RTC in Carmarthen only this Friday. Carmarthen from 20.30 – 22.00.

Welsh Junior Men Swim Set takes place in Swansea this Saturday, for those invited to attend, and the Welsh Water Polo Clinic in on Sunday in Cardiff, including Academy at Clinic.

On 28th November, the 2nds team play their first proper match, against South Gloucester Men, in Winterbourne. this is exciting times for the 2nd team players, good luck to you all.

The following weekend, 2nd / 3rd December sees the 2000’s and 2003’s in action in the Welsh League, good luck to you all for your matches.
