Trainings restarting!

This week we are starting up again our Wednesday trainings (6-7pm junior U16, 7-8pm adults development training) in Chesterton, and next week we will have our first ever trainings in Trumpington on Monday, 6.30-8pm U18s, and 8-10pm adults training. We are looking forward to new and returning players in both sessions! More info on trainings, venues etc can be found here.

 

Beach Handball Fun

Our club sent 3 teams to the British Beach Handball Championships this year: The Cambridge Wolverines (men’s 1), the Cranbridge Crab (men’s 2 with support from some Cranfield players!) and the Cambridge Honeybadgers (women’s team). All teams showed some great handball and reached quaterfinal stages for Sunday, but unfortunately Saturday night proved to have been too much fun, and so the first games of the day were lost, meaning that the women’s went into the plate competition, while the men’s teams were knocked out directly. Eventually, the women’s also lost out at the semifinal stage of the plate competition, but great fun was had by all, and we are definitely going back for more next season! Below a selection of photos from the weekend.

Dates announced for next season’s S8 matches

The weekends for the next season’s S8 matches have been announced. Below you can find what weekends the teams are set to play their league rivals, however please note that no exact dates and times have been set yet, and these dates can still change pending on hall bookings and agreements between the teams.

As you can see, our men’s and women’s S8 teams are going to play together most of the season!

Agi voted Female Coach of the Season

We would like to congratulate Agi for being awarded Female Coach of the season, recognising her efforts in coaching both men’s teams and the junior section of the club for the last few years. This year has been particularly successful with the first men’s team which yet again gained qualification to the European Challenge Cup after finishing 3rd in the domestic league.

 

Zsolt Majoros voted Male Player of the season 2016

We would like to congratulate our player Zsolt Majoros, who has been voted Male Player of the Season 2015/2016 by the fellow Super 8 Clubs.

A few words about him:

Zsolt is our longest standing member who is currently still playing in our first team:He arrived over 5 years ago and immediately made a big impact with his impressive shots, but only over the least few years has he developed into the lead player he was for us this season. Having played European Challenge Cup with us 2 years ago gave him the motivation to be even more committed to the team, in hopes of achieving qualification again. He has guided the team to success with his tactical insights and great will to win, and many opponents have learned to fear his back-court canons enough to man mark him for most of our matches this season. Much to Zsolt’s despair this left him standing at the half-court line for much of the match, watching the rest of the team exploit the bigger gaps. However, he more than made up for his extra “rest” by going the extra step in defence and scoring those vital goals in the last phase of the matches when the strength of the others was draining. Despite his limited time in attack, he still managed to score 53 goals for the team during the season and played a vital role in securing the 3rd place for the team which again allows us to participate in the Challenge Cup…

We can only say, well done, thanks and let’s make the next season just as successful!

This award also means we retain the Player of the season for the second season running now! Keep it up!
