Even as i write this i am in disbelief and awe of the way that the British National Teams Championship is such a rollercoaster of emotions of an event. It is simply my favourite event on the calender. This event brings together the various London area clubs and players and the team spirit is second to none. The coaches promote the ethics of team spirit and togetherness and the players and parents keep that alive. Moberly were represented in the London Area Minors and Pre-Cadet Team by Omar and Ali at u38k, Kyle at u50k and Kamal at u55k. Maddie fought at u57k in the Girls Minors and Pre-cadet team. Alex Kouda and Reuel fought in the Cadet team at u50k and u73k repectively.
As reigning champions the boys Minors and Pre-cadet looked every inch superior with crushing defeats of the Northern, Welsh and Western area teams and a tight contest victory against with the Scottish team. The semi final was won 7-0 against the North West and the final was an exciting encounter against the Northern Home Counties, but a London Area win, 5-2. The boys contributed to some amazing performances and thrilling contests. Maddie played an inportant role in the bronze win for the Girls Minor and Pre-cadet team with some fantastic battling victories. The Cadet and Junior boys team was undone in the pools after two excellent victories over the North and NHC teams, but lost out to the West and Southern Area teams. There was also an emphatic victory for the Senior Mens team, and bronzes for the Senior Women and Cadet Girls. London Area Judo rocks
