Ely Vikings won the Cambridgeshire Korfball League at the weekend for the first time in the club’s history – running out unbeaten as champions.
They beat Tigers in Cambridge 17-12 to take the championship – only the third club, along side Tigers and City, to win the title since records began 15 years ago.
“This is a massive achievement for our club,” said head coach, Adam Twiss. The average age of the winning squad was less than 19.
Vikings led throughout the game, reaching 8-4 at half-time. Olly Watts was top scorer with seven, followed by Robyn Seabright on five.
Each member of the winning squad except one began playing korfball with the club’s junior section when they were eleven years old.
