Man Clan class shines through at char­ity tour­na­ment

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

THE in­au­gu­ral Che­sham Net­ball Club Mixed Tour­na­ment raised £922 to go to­wards the club’s fu­ture and Che­sham Rugby Club’s club­house fundrais­ing on Satur­day.

Not even a gloomy fore­cast could dampen the spir­its, and the clouds even stayed away long enough for the teams to turn out in bright sun­shine at Chiltern Hills Academy.

Ten teams en­tered, vary­ing from friends throw­ing a team to­gether to Man Clan, the English Net­ball Na­tional Premier League Two side, based in High Wy­combe.

The pool stages saw each team play four matches, all of which were closely con­tested and the top two from each group went through to the semi fi­nals.

There, Man Clan beat Ninja War­riors and Flappy Chap­pies, cap­tained by Che­sham RFC’s first team cap­tain Jack Davies, beat Lady­boys, to go through to the fi­nal.

Man Clan surged ahead in the first half to take a 5-1 lead, but Davies ral­lied his troops and they man­aged to pull it back to 5-5 im­me­di­ately af­ter the break, with their 6ft 4ins goal shooter fi­nally find­ing his range.

This used all their en­ergy though, and Man Clan’s con­sis­tency shone through as they pulled ahead to win 9-6 and be crowned cham­pi­ons.
