posted 28 May 2019, 08:19 by Niki Cross

In only its 2nd year of Premier competition, CWBA 's first team took the bronze medal at the National Championships in Sheffield on 25 May 2019.  

Despite the loss of key players who were in Thailand with the GB U25 Women's team, CWBA improved on their 4th place in the league with a convincing win over London Titans to take home the bronze medal.

Their first game against eventual winners, Sheffield Steelers, did not dampen their spirits and sets them up for next season.


Junior Elite 8s

posted 30 Apr 2019, 03:58 by Niki Cross

The CWBA junior team made the trip to the EIS Sheffield to participate in an exciting competition with the other top 7 teams from this year's competition.  

Unfortunately the plan did not quite come off with CWBA only winning the 2nd of their 3 games.  However all games were very competitive and very close.

Finishing 6th this year after taking the championship last time was a bitter blow to all the players. The team had lost a lot of its more experienced players who had exceeded the age limit this year so are very much in a development phase.  Hopefully the learning points will make a difference to training and competition in the future.

CWBA WOMEN ARE NATIONAL CHAMPIONS

posted 27 May 2018, 10:09 by Niki Cross

After 2 years of splitting the league and Championship title with other clubs CWBA WOMEN today clinched the double by adding the Championship to the league title they won in April.  After building to a 16 point lead Angels fought back hard.  CWBA managed to retain a 5 point advantage despite some tactical use of timeouts in the last 2 minutes by both coaches.  So proud of all the team.
