Write up by Kat Jones:
Although the Midlands sides didn’t have a long preparation time ahead of the tournament, many of the girls chosen for the WO side had played together either at the Premiership Permit or Senior Euro’s competitions in Edinburgh earlier in the summer giving them a great grounding as a team. The Midlands WO got off to a shaky start with a 5-2 loss to the SE sharks, but they built on each successive performance, beating the NW blades and SW Saxons 7-1 and 8-1 respectively later in the day. The following day the girls faced the Wales national side, and despite a late resurgence by Wales, the Midlands won by 7-3. Moments of brilliance by Jade Grantham (Notts) with a show-and-go and quickies between Jen Lee (galaxy), Anna Goddard (Cambs) and Sadi Meakin (Notts) created some lovely scores but the defensive performance really kept Wales out of the game.
A massive congratulations to Midlands mixed team who reached the finals in last weekends Nationals Tournament in St Ives.

With only a few training sessions, Jo Howson coached the mixed team consisting of players from several clubs in the region. Good results in early games and a convincing win in the semis put them into the finals.
In the game the team never gave up and fought hard but ended up losing by a couple of touch downs.
Thanks to all those involved and players who participated in training sessions.
The future is bright and definitely orange too!
Cambridge have lots of players representing England in the Junior Touch Championships.
With over 10 nations taking part it shows the growing strength of touch and the prosperous future that lies ahead.
We wish all our players the best luck in the teams they represent.
