It has been a great season for the Heaton A U15 players who took part in this year’s Junior Bradford Parks League. Having been knocked out in a very close semi-final last year the players were determined to go all the way! After a huge team effort by all 11 Heaton A players they ended up second in the league and through to the semi finals against Ilkley. The team went on to win this 4-2, securing their place in the finals against Cleckheaton Tennis Club. It was a nail-biting final on the 21st July but Oliver, Yash, Hashmath & John kept their nerve against Cleckheaton and won 4-2 overall – many congratulations to all who took part this season.
Heaton would also like to thank the captains Surita Wilson, Frances Glover and Usman Ahmed who have all dedicated their time to organising the teams and helping the children do well this year.
Also congratulations to the U18 team who reached the semi finals. A great achievement well done!
A massive thank you to all captains of the junior teams for their hard work during the season.
