British Championships Outcome

Friends of Allonby Men 4th
Friends of Allonby Ladies 3rd

Our Division 1 teams Men's and Ladies teams competed in the final weekends (21-22 May) play for this current polo season.  Although the weather was  a bit miserable on the Saturday, Sunday's bit of sunshine and the season's outcome for both of teams made up for it.
The neutral has to remember the teams competing against each other over the weekend are the best top men's and ladies teams in the British leagues.
It's the lads third season in D1 with placings 4th year 1, 5th year 2 and now 4th again year 3 so really creditable performances over that time. They know it, I know it. Boys it's time to push. There's no doubting the teams ability. It really does depend on how ambitious you are for yourselves. Player for player you are certainly well good enough to break into that top spot. The slightest individual error at this level can be so costly and it's that level of detail that needs addressing. Nevertheless a really good and very successful weekend.
For the girls team the previous results had already pre-determined 3rd place. This was as good as we could achieve. Unlike the men's league the ladies league for the weekend was somewhat set up with the more successful teams playing each other towards the end giving the Sunday games and their outcomes more of an edge in terms of results. Most newly promoted teams are just looking to hold their own and stay in their new division. For the girls to go on and achieve the third place at their first experience was a really good achievement with an average age of under 16 years for most of the team. If they carry on and work together there surely can only be but one outcome to focus on next season!

Players used over the season included:
Men: George,Harvey,James, Kartik, Lewis, Shivan, Stuart, Suryan,
Ladies: Amira, Ella, Ginny, Isobel, Katie, Ruth, Sophie.

As much as the playing successes are the focus of the weekend, just as important if not more so is the togetherness and the really good club atmosphere that everyone generates in enjoying each others company, the willingness just to muck in and get on with things. Yes, the players and the teams set the scene if you like, but equally so the support and the help of the adults and the parents doing the fetching and carrying is all part and parcel of making the weekend what it can be. A really enjoyable and successful weekend, well done to everyone.
Many Thanks
Mike

 

Chester April 2016

My first trip on moving water with the club was to Chester weir.  The quality of the Leadership from Colin and Vincent was first class. Their decision making and instruction gave me confidence to paddle there. Also with the support of the rest of the team it allowed me to enjoy the day.

All the instruction and training from the team since I joined the club really came good, particularly with the T rescues after I capsized twice. A great team day out.


Thanks
Patrick

Congratulations


The Club would like to Congratulate Mike Moffit on his recent (last Saturday) National award presented by
British Canoe Union for his 'Outstanding Contribution to Paddlesport'   link to photo

This was announced at the BCU 75th Anniversary Dinner in Nottingham. Only a few awards were presented for outstanding support in the sport. As many of you know Mike has a long history with paddling from Scouting Stuart's participation in the sport, Mike becoming Coach, then Polo coach to GB Canoe Polo Sqaud coach.  He is still one of the most active Coaches in the Club and Nationally.  A WELL DESERVED AWARD

Congratulations Mike from Friends of Allonby Liverpool Canoe Club
