Couldn’t resist a World Cup Football jingle! We are delighted to announce that the S’PORT will play its’ NVL, Manchester League and Juniors competitive matches in 2018/2019 Season at Stockport’s brand new facility, Brinnington Park.
It is a fantastic Complex, operated by Life Leisure. Home to fantastic new sports amenities and programming, the Centre provides us with an array of opportunities to play in a state-of-the-art building with our own changing rooms for the S’PORT and Visiting Teams.
In the name of a famous Inspiral Carpets song ‘ this is how it feels’…to be happy. I could not be more proud of our combined Stockport Volleyball and Frodsham Volleyball clubs. They rose to the challenge in a galant performance against a strong US/Canada squad.
Let’s put things in perspective. Never before had ‘Frodport’ (name conjured up by Jane) played together and on such a big court with official National Volleyball League Referee, Abdul. Our opposition as well as being older, train four times a week and had been playing for 4 years. We, in comparison, around 6 months to one year with occasional training.
NBC were a credit to their Organisation. The girls showed personality and dedication against clear ‘under dogs’. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and one that our young people can only benefit from. A big heart felt applause to each and every player. Culmimated by the clear , MVP, Ruby from Frodsham, handing a commemorative trophy to the victors Coach, Morgan. Thank you to Life Leisure, all parents and our reliable volunteers, Matt, Seb and Tim. The final set allowed teams to be mixed up for a closer scoreline. Morgan completed with an inspirational chat and encouraging words for our beginners.
Unfortunately, the S’PORT bowed out today in the National Shield Semi Finals held in Media City. We were beaten by a resolute Intervolley Team 25-22 20-25 20-25 19-25. Stockport weren’t at their best today, but can hold their heads up high. Reaching the Semi Final in our first season as an NVL team is an achievement that makes every one of us at the Club proud. Tomorrow is another day as we go again this time to take on both Darlington and Doncaster in fixtures that might well determine the Champions of the League where presently the S’PORT sits in pole position. #c’montheS’PORT 🏐👏👏👏
