U15 Water Polo Team
On Saturday 17th October Barnstaple under 15 Water Polo Team travelled to Manchester’s Aquatic Centre for the under 15 National Age Group Inter-club competition. Their Six Players were combined with three from Exeter, two from Penzance and one from West Dorset.
In Barnstaple’s opening match against Watford they struggled to stop Petar Djorjic (who finished as second highest scorer in the tournament) going four goals behind before scoring their own first goal. Barnstaple got progressively stronger as the game went on but just ran out of time losing 5-7. Next up were Cheltenham who had beaten Watford 5-4 in their opening game but Barnstaple’s rapidly improving team beat them 7-6. Unfortunately this left Barnstaple narrowly bottom of their group on goal difference and thus in the playoff group for 9th to 12th place.
In their next games they beat city of Manchester B team 12-8 then Grantham 13-0. In their final game against Ealing they were trailing 4-5 when captain and top scorer Bob Whittaker was excluded from the rest of the match and as Barnstaple chased the game they kept being caught on the counter attack by Ealing’s Yalin Gulen and Samuel Nabli (the tournament’s first and third highest goal scorers) finally losing 4-14.
Bob Whittaker was joint fifth highest scorer for the tournament with 13 goals.
In the final Bridgefield (A composite team of clubs from Liverpool, Lancaster and Newcastle) beat Caledonian ( A composite team from all of Scotland) 2-1 with City of Sheffield getting the bronze medal by defeating City of Manchester A team 5-4
The team are pictured below.
From the left Theo Quantick (Exeter Goalkeeper) Jacob West (2 goals), Freddie Herring (Exeter 6 goals), Bob Whittaker, Miles Miller (4 goals), Ollie Bushnell, Cam Sydenham (Exeter 4 goals) Tyler Kearey (Penzance), Jacob Butterworth, Jacob West (2 goals) Alex Felton (West Dorset 5 goals), Fletcher Stevenson (Penzance 6 goals) and Jacob Allchorn (Goal Keeper). Coaches pictured Phil Sydenham and Simon Quantick
The Club would like to say a huge Good Luck to David Miller
David Miller has been given a huge opportunity and has been accepted at Plymouth College on a swim programme training under John Rudd. David has shown huge potential with his Breastroke and entered and competed at the Nationals in August. We would love to wish him all the best of luck and look forward to seeing him during College holidays.
Josh gains silver medal at his first ever County Championship
After the success at the long distance County Champs in January, hopes were high for more good swims at the next county championships. The swimmers came up with the goods, with Lily Nichols and Kelly Jeffery making the Championship finals, Lily winning silver. For Josh Gammon this was his first ever County Championship and he gained a silver in the 200 Individual Medley. Well done, Josh. Many swimmers made the age group finals with numerous personal bests.
