In the recent Euro Masters Championships, Ian Ferraby and Billy Marwaha earned Bronze medals with England Over 40s and Over 55s, respectively


England Over 40s

The Over 40s began their campaign with a close 2-1 defeat to Spain followed by 2 big victories over Italy (11-0) and Ireland (7-1). This resulted in a 2nd place finish in Pool B and a quarter final match up with Scotland. England were victorious with Ian Ferraby scoring the second from a penalty corner in a 3-2 victory.

The team were narrowly defeated 2-1 in the semi-final by The Netherlands but finished the tournament in 3rd place, dispatching Germany 4-0.


England Over 55s

The Over 55s opened their tournament with 4 successive victories. Billy Marwaha got on the scoresheet in a 4-0 win over Italy, followed by a 6-0 defeat of Ireland, narrow 1-0 victory over Scotland, and a 6-0 triumph of Wales. They then faced the difficult task of overcoming Germany and the Netherlands but were beaten 4-1 and 4-3 to round off the pool games. Marwaha registered the equaliser for 3-3 in their final pool game, before the Dutch sealed victory moments later. They faced Wales in the Bronze medal match and came out on top, winning 4-1.
The club are thrilled with their exploits in Tilburg, Holland, and look forward to future success in upcoming tournaments.
