National u15 Boys Volleyball Cup - last 12
Playing at the National Volleyball Centre in Kettering, the 'Wembley' of volleyball, the Under 15 Boys Team from Newcastle Staffs Volleyball Club ('Castle) were an agonising one place away from going through to the last six in the National Cup. 'Castle started in impressive style by beating Nuneaton 2-0. Eventual tournament winners Boswells A, a team that has four national level players in their line-up, then beat 'Castle 2-0. 'Castle then had a very competitive semi-final against Redhill, but were beaten, sending them into a play-off against Boswell B. Despite a determined effort Boswells B edged ahead of the battling NSVC boys to take their place in the last six.
Coach Keith Handy is impressed with the rapid improvement in the NSVC squad since qualifying for the regional finals in February. When you consider our Under 15s squad is made up of mainly Under 14 players it shows what talent we have ready for the same age group next year. Captain Peter Handy said all the players showed great character with Alex Hague one of the stand-out players on the day.
Squad: Connal Platt, CameronLocker, Harry Kearon, Peter Handy (captain), Theo Rodwell, Adam Barr, James Smith, Alex Hague
