Hornsea Under 30’s Reserve Champions

Congratulations to HIBC’s Under 30’s team who were runners up at the National Championships in the David Cornwell Under 30 Two Rink Triples. After winning through several earlier rounds, the team played their semi-final on 2nd April at the National Championships at Nottingham IBC. A win of 31-27 against Dolphin IBC saw them through to the final where they faced Huntingdon IBC. Both clubs had never been at the finals before so a new name on the trophy was guaranteed. Sadly this time it was Huntingdon who got their name on the trophy, winning 38 – 30.

The team consisted of Lydia Cutmore, Holly Chaytor, Jack Bird, Katy Baxter, James Baxter and Matthew Bell, with Luke Watson as travelling reserve (and played in an earlier round).

How Can You Get Involved?

Entries for the National Championships are made through the club in March/April each year (see noticeboards). In addition to the individual competitions the club normally enters several team competitions. All members are welcome to nominate for club teams and teams are normally picked from the players in the Yorkshire League teams.
