A fine performance from T3 at the weekend as they left the luxury of the Perse Palace to acquaint themselves with the faded grandeur of Impington Village College sports hall.
Having started off their campaign last week with a win, they fielded a strong line-up against reigning champs City 1. Tom Coslett, the Bear Grylls of Tigers Korfball, hiked a mountain, did ten burpees and returned in time to line up alongside Tigers’ very own very Tulip from Amsterdam, Luuk. Mother and daughter combo Jess and Martha Llewelyn ditched the Incredibles outfits for an hour and hoked out two Tigers shirts from their extensive wardrobe of orange Llewelyn shirts. Down the other end, Inverurie’s Greatest Ever Korfballing Export Ross Thomson guided the three starlets of Ollie Ella and Rebecca, with new boy Sam Sadat straining to get off the subs bench (industrial strength manacles kept him at bay.) Still, it was an equally strong line-up for the opposition and it was touch and go in a tightly-contested first half that ebbed and flowed and ended up 7-7.
Newest signing Sam Sadat – not to be confused with his more famous Tigers’ namesake, Sam Oldham, came on and enabled the switch of Ollie and Tom, while a relieved and reassured Ross made way to watch all parts click and the team run out 14-11 winners. Tom and Ross led the way with the goals, with Luuk, Martha, Ollie, Rebecca and Sam chipping in. We had key contributions from Ella, lots of flinging of the ball from Jess (leading to plenty of rebounding) and wise words from the sidelines by Head Coach Chris himself, feverishly chalking off the days to the start of the National League campaign (which Liv isn’t too happy about as it’s ruining their walls.)
T3 go top! T5 and T4 ….. you’re up next!
Don’t forget that there is no training on Wed 16 Oct.
