Great North West Trials

Sixteen players turned up to North West Squad training on Sunday with the prospect of selection for the squad at the Inter-Areas competitions in Nottingham on February 12th. Coached by Warrior’s Mike Brayne and Kev Jones players were put through their paces for three hours at Sale leisure centre.

The attendees brought a mix of experience from the NWKL and CERL and represented by most association clubs. A special mention to Lancaster University players who had eight making the long trip down. Club representation was as follows:

City – 0
Hawks – 3
Lancaster – 8
Manchester University – 2
Warriors – 3

The North West Squad hopes to meet again regularly throughout the year. The Inter-Areas Squad will be announced soon!

Korfball action this weekend

This weekend sees an action packed return to the NW korfball season.

Manchester City will host a free taster session on Saturday 21st January at Sale Leisure Centre from 1 – 2:30pm.

This will be followed by a friendly match between Manchester City and University 2:30 – 4pm.

And don’t forget on Sunday there will be a North West Squad training session from 4-7pm, again at Sale Leisure Centre. It will cost ¬£5 to cover costs.

Lions to leave league after split

Man Uni have decided that the Lions will not continue in the North West League for the second half of the season. With a heavy fixtures schedule this year all clubs have struggled to put out consistent squads each week. This decision allows Man Uni to play more consistent teams for the remainder of the season!

North West Squad Coach and Training

We’re pleased to announce the North West Squad training from 4 – 7 pm on Sunday 22nd January at Sale Leisure Centre. This will be an open session for anyone interested in taking part in the Inter Areas in Nottingham on February 12th.

Mike Brayne will lead the session with assistance from his Warrior’s team mate Kev Jones!
