Tomorrow our Academy players and coaches are hitting the long and winding road to Cornwall, for the Britbowl playoffs against the Cornish Sharks.
Such a big deal is this event, the Academy HC and his Defensive Co-Ordinator are missing this particular Media Officer’s wedding for the journey.
Regular seasons are now over for the Senior and Under-19 teams, and the winner of the tournament held in Cornwall on Saturday 22nd August will decide who goes to compete at BritBowl, along with Under-17 league champions Kent Exiles.
We’re very excited to catch HC Steve Watson for an extensive post-season chat soon – but not too soon, we hope.
Everyone at the Essex Spartans is immeasurably proud of the Academy organisation, from its humble beginnings under Steve Mitchell several years ago to its metamorphosis into a solid, high-numbered band of brothers on a Cornish road trip to BritBowl.
Go on the boys!
