Well done to all our players this weekend. Richmond Bucks brought home a 3:0 win on Saturday, October 2nd, in their first-ever Division 1 match against Miners Doncaster. This was a debut for the team in Division 1, following their promotion from Division 2. With five players aged U18, what a fantastic result! (25-20 | 26-24 | 25-18). MVP of the game was Peter Soczewka with an amazing 71% effectiveness in attack. Well, done team, we’re really proud of you!
Saturday was also the first game of the season for our Super League Richmond Docklands team. It was a tough 4-set match against Durham who won 3:1 (24-26 | 25-16 | 25-13 | 25-21). Thank you to Durham for hosting.
On Sunday, October 3rd, the Super League team were victorious against Sheffield Hallam without dropping a single set (25:19 | 25:19 | 25:15). MVP went to Andrea Ivanov whilst the Black Knight was awarded to Tomasz Wysocki.
