National Junior League - March 2019

Saturday 9th March brought the fourth and final round of the National Junior League with me, Stephen and Tracey Wren being on the road at 6.30 am transporting four boys to Byng Hall TTC in Royal Tunbridge Wells.

We had previously won the first three rounds but knew this one would be very difficult not only being without Jack Roberts (skiing in Italy) but knowing Cleeve Park would rearrange their teams to ensure all their top players would be present in their first team.

Hugo, Daniel and Louis with Henry stepping in for Jack formed today’s team. We started well playing Cleeve Park Blue, winning 6-0 but realized the day was going to get tougher as we had some harder teams to come. There were lots of really hard fought matches with Louis not doing anything for my health going two down in three matches before coming back to eventually win and only dropping one match. Daniel managed the same result and Chris Bartrum, Cleeve Park’s coach was prompted to shake both Louis and Daniel’s hands and congratulate them on their play. Henry played well but early on seemed to have a lot of bad luck against him with nets and edges but didn’t let it affect him overall. Hugo as captain supported the others throughout the day but after a late night at the Royal Albert Hall wasn’t at his usual standard.

One of the best parts of the day for me was to see Daniel being able to apply his coaching in the games. A big thank you to Ian Girdler, Sharon and the 3 Trevor’s for their coaching help ensuring our boys give a good account of themselves and on another day it could have been one place better. Thanks to Henry, sorry you missed your meal out and Jack you were missed by all.

After a very long day, 15 hours the car journey home was very quiet.

Well done boys, I am very proud of you all.

National Junior League - January 2019

Hugo, Daniel, Jack and Louis participated in round 3 of the National Junior League at Byng Hall, Tunbridge Wells.

Our boys gave a good account of themselves winning by the narrowest of margins, 1 point.
There was real commitment as one boy had an op the week before and was discharged from hospital on the Friday evening. Well done we are very proud of you all.

The next round in March will be the finals.

National Junior League - November 2018

Yesterday brought the second round of the National Junior League at Tonbridge Wells with Daniel coming in for Louis. After the promotion of two teams from the second division the league was much stronger seeing all our players losing their 100% records. (The stronger teams start in the second div to enable all the teams to play each other over the course of the series)
The standard was very high with last week’s Kent Junior Grand Prix tournament winner playing for Cleeve Park, the boys lost five games between them but remain unbeaten in matches winning four and drawing one making them winners for this round with Daniel topping the ratings. All the boys played extremely well against class opposition with some very close results and can be proud of their performances. Thank you once again to Andy Roberts for his coaching help and for looking after the team registration until my arrival.

National Junior League - October 2018

This weekend the Isle of Thanet League entered a junior team into the National Junior League at St Johns C of E School Royal Tunbridge Wells. The league meet four Saturdays over the winter with twelve teams comprising of two divisions, each team member plays ten games over the day. At the end of the first two meets there are two teams promoted and two teams relegated and on the third meet one team promoted and one team relegated, this leaves the final meet with league winners becoming champions.

The perceived weaker teams are put into the 1st division with the rationale that by the fourth meet the teams will be in the correct rankings and everyone will have played each other. Because the Isle of Thanet’s strengths were unknown we were put into the first division.

The Isle of Thanet’s team is made up of Hugo Ursell (captain), Daniel Wren, Jack Roberts and Louis Lines.
For the first meet we played with Hugo, Jack and Louis and had an almost perfect start dropping only one game and winning all our matches with the boys topping the player averages. Well done all the boys but I fear it will only get tougher as we go on.

Winning is great but I would just like to say how proud of the boys I am in the way they conducted themselves through a very long and tiring day, it was very quiet in the car on the way home apart from the purring (not from the engine). Thank you to Andy Roberts for his help with tactics and I hope he will be willing to do the same next time.
