Hucclecote players from Hurricanes, Lightening, Storm, Thunder and Tornadoes squads played in the Gloucestershire League Tournament on 7th and 8th September. On Saturday Hurricanes and Lightening were surprised to see three Regional League teams had been invited to play in the tournament. Hurricanes did their best to try and reach the semi finals but unfortunately only won two out of four games. Lightening fought all the way to the top by beating Nomads, Churchdown and Gloucester Ladies but couldn't quite beat Regional League team Evesham. However this still placed them in the semi-finals where they had to face Evesham again. Lightening knew they would have to work hard if they wanted a chance to reach the finals and that is exactly what they did and went onto beat Evesham! Lightening then had to face Saracens, another Regional League team, but struggled to stay up with the pace of Saracens quick movements and skill.
On Sunday two of Hucclecote's teams also reached the finals and both just missed out on winning overall. The weekend was a great achievement for the start of the season and there are now high hopes for the season ahead.
