End of an Era at Chelsea Academy
Weekly Report – Friday 2nd NovemberJon Kaufmann – 9th November 2016
With Ashburnham Boys and Girls now safely through to the Jack Petchey ESTTA All London Finals in January, along with William Hogarth Boys and Barnes Girls, it leaves just the Barnes Boys to qualify from South London on the 22nd November. So far a great start for the West London Ping Schools.
In order to keep all the squad players match fit, a ‘friendly’ was organised between Ashburnham and William Hogarth. The latter got the best of the Ashburnham C and D teams but the Ashburnham Girls and the Boy’s B team proved too experienced for the newly formed Hogarth teams. so it’s hats off to Hadil, Chanelle, Grace, Ayan, Abdurahmane, Uwab, Dannyell, Freece, Oscar and Isaac from Ashburnham. Ands it’s three cheers for Dennis, Aungkrit, Simon, John, Sam and Jaden from the Hogarth.
This Friday sees the Under 13’s in action, with Samuel OB, Samuel M, Abed, and Presley representing the Chelsea Academy. They will be up against a predictably strong team from the Ernest Bevin College along with teams from Lambeth and the UCS based in Hampstead.
Normal Friday evening Top Table will continue in one half of the hall whilst the qualifying event will take place in the other.
Best Regards to all. JK
