Alejandro wins Best Male Player of the Season award!

Cambridge Handball Club is delighted that at the yearly EHA club conference, Alejandro Garcia Costa was announced as best male player of the season 2014/2015!

To earn this honour, at the end of the season each club was asked to nominate 3 players that will be put to vote to the other Super8 clubs to select the best player of the season. Cambridge nominated Alejandro, Toby and Cedric. Each club in turn had 3 votes to cast for best player of the season, with the top choice receiving 10 points, the second 6 points and the third 3 points. Of course voting for the own club was not permitted.

Alejandro was voted the best by the rival Super8 clubs which comes as no surprise since he has played an outstanding season. Scoring 103 in the league despite often playing on the right back instead of his usual line position, he has likely top-scored the season (no statistics are available from other teams, but at the halfway point of the season, he was leading the scoreboard). In addition to that, he was our best scorer in the EHF Challenge Cup, netting 11 goals against Szekelyudvarhely who then went on to win the whole competition! But everyone who knows Alejandro is aware of the fact that his true passion is defence. Not to be outdone by anyone in the team, he earned the most yellow cards and 2 minute suspensions (8 and 12 respectively), but no red cards! He has been a tremendous help to the club also off court, supporting the development league team and players as well as the junior trainings. In addition to all of this, he was also part of the Cambridge University Handball team, which won the British University Handball Championships.

Congratulations and we wish you many more outstanding seasons to come!
