Christmas and New Year Break

Last week saw our final week of training for 2015, which was filled with lots of fun, games and prizes. This was then followed by a fabulous Christmas Jumper themed Curling, Christmas Dinner and Dancing extravaganza in true Warrior Christmas style.

We are now having a couple of weeks of to rest, recharge and stuff ourselves full of Turkey, Mulled Wine, Chocolate and Christmas Pudding.

We would like to wish all of our members, friends and families and very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Training resumes on Tuesday 5th January at 8pm where we can all start to work off the Christmas indulgences and get back in shape for the rest of the season.

Looking forward to seeing you all again in 2016 as well as getting to meet all of our future members!

The Warriors xoxo

#BigThankYou

To celebrate the  2015 BBC Sports Personality of the year, Eddie Izzard took the lead in the nation’s biggest ever thank you to sport volunteers.

Like many Korfball Clubs around the country, Warriors are incredibly lucky to be supported by a truly fabulous bunch of volunteers who keep the club awesome and successful largely due to their efforts.

Committee Members, score keepers, stats takers, bib washers, referees, shot clockers, equipment storers, kit cleaners, all of our fabulous supporters and everyone else in between!

Thank you for everything you have done and keep on doing. Here’s to a brilliant and successful 2016!

Current League Positions- 2015 Year End

With the last of our games played this weekend, here’s a quick look at how our 3 teams stand at the end of the calendar year.

Warriors 1 currently sit 3rd on the CEKL1 Table, having only lost one match to Birmingham City. There are plenty more games to come, so let’s see if Warriors 1 can get their way back to Number 1 for a 3rd consecutive season…Screen Shot 2015-12-22 at 8.59.23 pm

Over in the NWKL, Warriors 2 sit comfortably in top place and remain undefeated with a very impressive number of goals scored. Warriors 3 sit in 3rd place with 2 losses but also managed the biggest ever win for a Warriors 3 team throughout the games played so far…Screen Shot 2015-12-22 at 9.00.57 pm

 

Looking forward to the second half of the season and lots more games as well as lots more wins.

Well done to all of our players so far this season!

 

The 2015/16 Season is Officially Up and Running!

For the most up to date Warriors news & scores, don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter!

Warriors 1 already started their Central England Korfball League (CEKL) campaign last weekend with a win, and this week continue their CEKL fight as well as the start of the England Korfball Promo League campaign.

Warriors 2 and 3 both launch their campaigns in the North West Korfball League this weekend. Can Warriors 2 remain undefeated for a second season in a row? Will Warriors 3 provide an upset to the 2’s?

 

We fortunate this season to be support by a great pool of coaches with various levels of experience who are lead by original Warrior and long time Warrior Head Coach, Kev Moss. His very able assistants come in the form of: Ben Nickerson (following his move from Nottingham City and current injury status!), Richard Dawson (‘Fish’ for all those who know him in the Korf World- 3rd Team Coach), Chris Cooper, Sophie Laurenson and Emma Higton. We are also fortunate to be able to draw on the fantastic experience of coaches and Warriors Veterans Mike Brayne and Paul Blood.
