Gwent juniors take Guernsey by storm

The end of the school term saw the Gwent junior squad leave for Guernsey to play the island team. This is always a highly anticipated event and this year was no exception. Seven boys and seven girls represented the county with many of the Gwent team being considerably younger than their opponents.

A fun tournament was held on the first night which was won by the Guernsey/Gwent pairing of Jordan Trebert/Kate Whiteman.

the day out to Herm was a great success, despite flash flooding and hailstones less than two miles away! The squad plus most of the adults swam so it couldn’t have been too cold!

the match was a closely fought affair with Gwent always just managing to keep their noses ahead after a strong showing in the singles, to eventually come out 24-15 winners.

captain James Ellaway gave a good speech thanking the opposition for their hospitality and close matches.
the team will have benefited from hard matches and will be aware of the challenge to come when Guernsey return in July 2015

thanks must go to the Gwent committee and Jan Pritchard in particular for making this such a successful weekend.
