Sussex Youth End Season on a High

So another season comes to a close and we all can look back with pride at what has been a brilliant season and a great team effort.

Our last game of the season was home to Hampshire and you could have forgiven the team for relaxing after we had won both under 18 and under 21 sections but no there was still the business of the under 18's and the team keeping its 100% record for the season and the way we started it was obvious they meant business. First up was Dan Perry who was himself going for 8 out of 8 which he made certain by winning 3-0 with a impressive MOM 25-91. Next up was was captain Lewis Gurney who had a tough match against Jack Seymour and they fought toe to toe with Lewis coming out on top with a Performance of the Day game winning 3-2 with a 22-21. Next was Zach Luke who won 3-1 with a 14-94. That was followed by Freddie Jackson who won 3-1 with a 15-62. So with 4 wins rattled of pretty smartly it was down to Tavis Dudeney to wrap up the win for the team which he did winning 3-1 with a 21-38. So with the win and 100% record sealed it was Alex Gurr's turn to keep the winning streak going which he did with another 3-1 and a 21-15 and like Dan marking 8 out of 8 for the season. Last up was Jack Croft who sadly couldn't make it a magnificent 7 but put in a good performance losing 3-0 with a 17-40.

Next up was the Girls who were overdue a win and hoping to make it 50% for the season. To get us on our way was PJ Langridge who got the Girls of  to a winning start winning 2-0 with a 13-73. She was followed by debutant Ashleigh Turner who put in a very good performance but sadly went down 2-1 with a 12-91. Finally playing her last game was Becky King who didn't disappoint winning 2-0 with a LOM 18-56 and also joining the hall of fame by making it 8 out of 8 for the season.

Finally it was the under 21's that saw 4 players playing their last games. First of those was Jake Emery who put in a good fight but sadly lost 3-2 with a 16-58. Next was the ever present Tom Telford also playing his last game and also couldn't sign off with a win going down 3-1 with a 16-28. Next was the odd one out Dennis Bowyer who still has plenty of years left and once again gaining MOM winning 3-2 with a 21-36. Next saying his farewells was Chris Lovegrove who also couldn't say good bye on a winning note going down 3-0 with a 10-30. Finally it was George Penning who made it a clean sweep of players saying good bye with a defeat losing 3-1 with a 18-56. So with the Under 21s suffering there heaviest defeat of the season but they can be forgiven.

Overall the County won 9-6 making 8 out of 8 for the season.

That just left the end of season awards and the winners were:

Alex Gurr Under 18s Player Of the Season
