Cardiff Tournament

Filed under: News — James Wilcox at 12:47 pm on Friday, October 30, 2015

Cardiff City took part in the annual beginners’ tournament at Cardiff University, alongside Raptors and teams from Nottingham, Reading, Birmingham, Oxford, Southampton, Bristol, and Exeter. The group stage took place in the morning with City seeing off Cardiff University, Nottingham, and Birmingham, however we lost out to Raptors which resulted in three teams tied at the top of the group. A penalty shoot-out between Raptors, Cardiff University, and Cardiff City would decide the group. With some sharp shooting from our new players, Daniel Weaver secured top spot for Cardiff City!

In the afternoon we went on to win our quarterfinal and reached a semi-final encounter with Southampton. It was a close match in which we went 2-0 down initially but we managed to claw it back and squeeze into the final! Lo and behold we were faced with Raptors again for an all Cardiff final! The game was competitive and thoroughly enjoyed by all, especially the new players, but in the end the rampant Raptors edged it with a 5-4 win.

Top of the League!

Next up in the Welsh Korfball League was the unknown quantity of Cardiff University 3. So early in the season there were plenty of eager players who were extremely unpredictable in their style of play. There were four debuts for Cardiff City as our new blood got stuck into the action!

The match saw goals for Jon and Dan on their debuts and it was a scrappy start with the students popping a few goals in during the confusion. City managed to get control though and we ended up winning comfortably 14-6! This win, with other results from that weekend, means that Cardiff City go top of the Welsh League!

Cardiff City:

Jonathan Bonsall – 1
Bivin Mathew
Daniel Weaver
Dan Pitt – 1
Jack Mitchell – 1
James Wilcox – 3
Cheya Tyson – 4
Julie Prosser – 1

Back to Winning Ways

Cardiff City opened the Welsh League season by locking horns with the reigning champions, Cardiff University 1. The students have won the league for the last two seasons running, bringing their total to four Welsh League titles on a par with the four won by Cardiff City.

Cardiff University 1 fielded a talented team comprised of some newly selected Welsh international players in Rebecca Fitch, Niamh Sully, and Leo Comerford but we were up for a fight!

Our team had been training together over the summer, with newly returned head coach James Wilcox, and the squad fielded current and previous Welsh internationals, seasoned Cardiff City veterans, and a new face!

Cardiff City leapt in to the lead when the game began, and despite the whole match being a fairly low scoring affair, managed to extend a 6-2 lead by half-time. The students looked like mounting a comeback, when they brought it back to 6-4 early in the second half, but the experience of the Cardiff City players meant they were able to hold out see out the game without any major dramas. Every single player in the Cardiff City team contributed with goals to the 11-5 victory – the first time Cardiff City beat Cardiff University 1 since the end of the 2012-13 season!

Next week Cardiff City take on Cardiff University 3, a chance for our new players to make a name for themselves!

Cardiff City:

James Wilcox – 2
Jack Mitchell – 2
Alec Care – 1
Ian Russell – 1
Lenneke van der Linden – 2
Julie Prosser – 1
Zoe Rose – 1
Alice Hunter – 1
