The new season of Junior British League is just around the corner with Ellenborough boys and the Wales girls ready to defend their Premier League titles following brilliant campaigns last year.
The Ellenborough team of Zsolt Sarka, Daniel Wright and Sam Cowan will attempt to defend their title against a strong depth of field in the Premier Division with both Burton Uxbridge and B-BATT hoping to overhaul the gap from 2011-12.
B-BATT look like one of the strongest challengers in the division with Helshan Weerasinghe, Zak Zilesnick and Sam Mabey in their ranks while dark horses Bournemouth Sports may come close to the top with an ever-improving quartet of George Downing, Hugo Pang, Luke Savill and Blair Fowler.
The Welsh girls meanwhile will have a fight on their hands to retain their title as their team is missing the troublesome twins of Megan and Angharad Phillips. The Wales team will still be lead by Charlotte Carey while fellow Welsh junior internationals Nicole Hall and Beth Roberts will attempt to retain the title.
If Wales are going to slip up then there’s a powerful trio on their tail. DHS Greenhouse Progress, Northfield and Burton Uxbridge will all fancy their chances at a crack at the 2012-13 Premier League title.
DHS Greenhouse Progress will look to Tin-Tin Ho, Tressa Armitage, Megan Knowles and Hiba Feredj while Northfield will hope their trio of Emily Bates, Jessica Dawson and Kayleigh Forster can force their way to the top.
Last year’s runners-up Burton Uxbridge will hope to re-claim their lost title from 2011 with Vicky Smith, Emma Torkington and Isobel Ashley putting pressure on the others in the Premier League battle.
