Richmond Docklands maintained their 100% record at the start of the new season with an important 3-0 win over Team BU Wessex. After a comfortable away victory in the cup the previous weekend, Richmond Docklands returned to Super8s action with a tricky away tie in Bournemouth. Without two players due to injury and one due to school commitments, Luis Bello’s squad of eight players travelled the short distance down the M3 to face a side who did the double over Docklands last season.
Bello’s boys down Manchester Marvels 2 in three sets
With a landmark victory to open the Super8s season over reigning champions IBB Polonia under their belts, Richmond Docklands made it back-to-back debut victories with a three-set victory over Manchester Marvels 2 on Saturday in the Cup.
Newly formed club beats champions IBB Polonia in five sets
After an off-season fraught with protracted negotiations between London Docklands, one of the most historic clubs in the country, and Richmond Volleyball Club, a rising force in English Volleyball, the debut match of the newly formed Richmond Docklands ended in a dream scenario.
The simple fact that Super 8 volleyball was played on Saturday evening at Kingston College Arena was a significant achievement and testament to the vision and hard work of all involved at both London Docklands and Richmond Volleyball Club.
Newly promoted Richmond Docklands win the first National Volleyball League Super 8’s match 3-2 against defending champions IBB Polonia.
And a BIG THANKS to the supporters from both teams creating a brilliant match day atmosphere. Over 200 fans witnessed the historic match.
Come and support your local national super 8 volleyball men’s team this coming Saturday for their first national volleyball league super 8 home game of the season at the Kingston Arena.
The opening fixture should be an explosive one as the combined club of Richmond VB and London Docklands, entertain fellow Londoners and defending champions, IBB Polonia.
