EAST GRINSTEAD WOMEN CROWNED JAFFA SUPER 6s CHAMPIONS

 

East Grinstead's women were the first to secure silverware, comprehensively seeing off Buckingham 10-2 in the final. And then their male compatriots followed suit for their 14th indoor title, beating Surbiton 3-1 in a shootout following a pulsating 3-3 draw.

Women's event

The first game of the day saw Buckingham overcome Bowdon Hightown 1-0 in a shootout after a 2-2 draw, starting the day's play in fine style. East Grinstead were then made to work hard for a place in the final, narrowly overcoming Slough 2-1 in a hard-fought encounter. Into the final, E.G. very much turned on the style, and at 5-0 up at half time the result never looked in doubt. Buckingham deservedly got on the scoresheet after the interval, and it ended 10-2 with player of the match Sophie Bray registering four goals, and three for Ellie Rayer.

East Grinstead's Elsie Nix said, “It feels amazing to get the win! I think the semi final was really tough against Slough, and Buckingham are a good team, but we just kept playing our game. It’s always good to score in a final and it means so much. I really didn’t expect the game to go like that, when we went 5-0 up I thought I must have been dreaming.


“I don’t think I’ve ever played in front of so many people before, people were shouting and screaming wanting you to win which was just amazing, I love this competition and I’m really proud to have won.”
