35 NEWS & MAIL WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 19, 2020 Sport Row players take the accolades for creditable season ATTENTION NOW TURNS TO START OF NEW CAMPAIGN Striker Parker echoed his manager’s thoughts and said: “Like the previous season we were finishing very strongly. “The excellent win at Chesham was our fourth in five games and with a good number of home games left when the season finished we could have achieved a high placing. “We are greatly looking forward to the season and getting off to a good start.” The Row squad looks like being very similar to last season with most players likely to re-sign and several new players added to strengthen the numbers. Hartley are hoping to kick-off the season in mid-September possibly with an FA Cup match. However, final notificati­ons will be provided by the FA to confirm details. There was also much acclaim for James Beauchamp, who showed great promise and claimed the Young Player of the Year award. The Row have completed most of their signings for the forthcomin­g season. Three players who will not figure though are Jack Ball, Aaron Kuhl and Marley Ridge. Ball has moved to Salisbury and Kuhl has returned to Slough Town after his loan spell at Hartley. Ridge has moved to Moneyfield­s, who appear to have assembled a strong squad for next season. Speaking after the awards ceremony, Millerick said: “A lot of credit must go to the players who came good just before the shutdown. “They stuck at it when things were difficult and started getting the results they deserved.” HARTLEY Wintney FC held their delayed player of the season awards during the weekend before last. The event was held outside with only club members in attendance. Social distancing was observed and the awards were presented by first team manager Anthony Millerick. Goalkeeper Luke Williams claimed the Supporters’ Player of the Season award with more than 50% of the votes recorded. He also scooped the Players’ Player of the Season accolade, making it a notable double and a deserved award for an outstandin­g campaign. The manager’s Player of the Year award went to Ty Smith, while the Best Individual Performanc­e in a Match went to Mitchell Parker for his four-goal haul in a match at Harrow Borough. Hartley Wintney FC’s end of season awards ceremony saw the Best Individual Performanc­e in a Match award go to Mitchell Parker for his four-goal haul against Harrow Borough JOSIE SHIPMAN Silverback­s receive invaluable coaching at camp YATELEY Silverback­s Basketball Club held its annual holiday basketball camp as youngsters aged between seven to 14 took part and were joined by some of the UK’s top coaches in the sport.

Alan Keane, GB U20 and Reading Rockets head coach, with players of the Yateley Silverback­s during the club’s annual holiday basketball camp Daines said: “It was such a great week. I’m so happy that after lockdown we could put on a camp following all the return to play restrictio­ns. Having worked with all the coaches and support staff with the national teams over the past eight seasons, it has been incredible having them come to pass on their wisdom, experience and humour to the Silverback­s camp. The players, from age 14 down to the Diddy Dunkers, have had great fun and learnt so much from some of the best coaches in the whole country.” Keane added: “It has been a rewarding and pleasurabl­e experience helping out with the coaching. I was genuinely impressed with the enthusiasm and desire to learn from every single camper, despite the heat and young age of some players.” For more informatio­n about joining, supporting or sponsoring Yateley Silverback­s Basketball Club, visit www.yateleysil­verbacks.
