Moberly Stars at 2017 Kent International

Another great weekend at the Kent International for the Moberly Stars. In what always proves to be a very high standard of junior judo, it was Moberly’s 19th appearance and we are very proud to be part of this prestigious event with its proud history.
In the Yellow belt section Luca won an excellent bronze in a very strong u34k category. While Diva and Tomasso just missed out.
The Orange and Green belt section had some of the largest groups. Kamal and Kyle again dominated the u42k taking gold and silver respectively. Luan and Amel were in great form as the won the u50k and u52k, and Nasima battled hard to claim bronze at u32k. Oliver Almond, Oliver Lee, Sacha and Maddy fought very well and gained more invaluable experience.
In the Blue and Brown belt section, Dinari picked up an excellent silver in the u46k, while bronzes were won by Alex (u46), and Daniel (u50). Brothers Michael and David just missed out in the u66k and u55k.
In the Youth section Reuel continued his great form with another gold in the u66k. Michael won bronze in the same category, while Tyrese also had to settle for a bronze at u73k. Finally there was a great performance from Bence also at u66k who missed the medals but showed great improvement.

Well done little John…😎

Moberly Stars at the London Youth Games

Well done to the Moberly Stars that represented their various boroughs at the London Youth Games at Crystal Palace last Saturday. In an extremely hot and humid sports centre, the stars fought exceptionally.
Just a bit unfortunate that they don’t all live in the same borough. We would have given the team winners a run for their money 😄
Liam, Luan (Tower Hamlets), Kamal, Diva (Brent), Reuel, Tyrese (Westminster) Amel (Croydon)
Kamal (Brent), David, Max Khovansky (Westminster)
Luca (Tower hamlets), Nelson (Ealing), Alex (Southwark), Daniel (Harrow)

Moberly Stars at South Coast Minors Open

Sensational golden sweep for the Moberly Stars minors at the South Coast Minors Open at Worthing today. Another excellent event run by the Sussex County team, maintaining a standard set by the late Roy Luff.
The Moberly minors were in magnificent form as all 6 won gold in their respective categories. Veras Brothers Luca and Liam, Oliver, Sacha, Myeisha and Maddie showed great desire and ability with gold medal winning performances.
All but Luca will be stepping up to pre-cadet level soon and the future looks bright😎
