Junior British League 2017 – 2018

Junior British League returned again to the fabulous Derby Arena and it always attracts the best players from all over the country and also from overseas. Woodfield boys were in Div. 4B and this proved to be a big test for the players all weekend as every match was very hard fought.

In the first match against St Marys Tigers, on his debut for Woodfield, Josh Webb who is still a cadet player recorded Woodfield’s first win of the weekend with a very convincing 3-0. However this was the only victory the boys could manage in that match as both Jamie Chen and Josh Roura lost close matches in 4 sets.

Some very tough matches followed, but the boys kept at it and both Josh Webb and Josh Roura were on the scoresheet on Sunday morning against London Academy 2. Josh Webb also had chances to make it a double in that match as he lead 2-1 before finally losing 2-3 to London no3.

Josh Webb then rounded off what had been a very solid weekend debut performance at Derby with another victory in the last fixture against BATTS B.

Overall a great experience for the players to learn to compete with the top under 18 players.
