Hucclecote Dominate at County Seeding and County Cup
Hucclecote Dragons and Panthers made their mark in the annual Gloucestershire Seeding Tournament by taking the winners and runner up slots in style. This will secure both teams a place in the South West Regional League Seeding Tournament where the aim will be to try andgain a top Division One placing or Division Two place.
Hucclecotes Dragons overall strength and depth showed as they took 5 from 5 victories winning with ease. Dragon’s fielded new playersDarcey Scot and Hannah Howl, both of whom made their debut appearances and played strongly. Dragons were untouchable and it was only their Panthers team who managed to secure a point from the game.
Another new player, Grace Cappell made her debut with the young Panthers squad and produced a very solid performance throughout. With mainly U.15’s and a scattering of U.16 players, Panthers really stepped it up and were a force to reckoned with.

Whilst the seeding tournament took place, Hucclecote had a 3rd team, Pumas, playing in the County league competition. Puma’s under the watchful eye of Ella Powell Davies also performed very strongly and won 4 out of 5 games in their section taking them through to the semi-final placing.
