Results – 2nd/3rd March
Our results from the weekend…
Men’s 1 won 2-1 away to Coventry & North Warwick 2
Goals: Nick Hall & Jon Cooper
Player of the Match was Tom Bradshaw
“The Men’s 1s made the short trip down the M6 to Coventry to take on Coventry and North Warwickshire 2nd team. The first half saw a lethargic Market Harborough side unable to break down Coventry who had set up a very effective half court press. The deadlock was eventually broken through a high Harborough press leading to Harborough stealing the ball high up the pitch, and Nick Hall scoring after good play from Ryan Harrison. Coventry continued to frustrate Harborough but Jon Cooper’s deadly drag flick put Harborough 2-0 up. A late consolation goal from Coventry was all they deserved.
All in all, a poor Harborough performance but a win is a win!”

Badgers won 3-2 at home to Welford
Goals: Cian Kirke, Owen Arthur & Thomas Parry
“Wow, what a game; we played Welford this week which is always a good tough game, but this time we won. Goals came from Cian Kirke, Owen Arthur and Thomas Parry.
By half time we were 3 goals up, but in usual fashion Welford came out in the second half and pulled some back. We kept the score at 3-2 to us, but the second half was a very hard fought game, it felt like it went on for ages!
The whole team played brilliant, a big thanks to ex-Badgers who came back to help us out this week. Well done all, great game.”
