With less than two weeks to go before the first big tournament of the season, the roster has been completed.
A great mix of new and old could see us doing great things at regionals, despite some confusion that’s come up over group draws as another team has already had to pull out of the tournament. Here’s who’ll be representing Reading at Southern Cup this year and how:
Jake Veryard (Captain) – beater/seeker
John Calzolari (Vice) – chaser/seeker
Ari Carrington – beater
Naz Mussarrat – chaser
Peter Glenister – beater (and snitch! RIP)
Molly Maurice-Smith – chaser/keeper
Molly Whitaker – chaser
Jonathan Bloomfield – beater
Alex Wall – beater/seeker
Tom Crowe – chaser/seeker
Harry Richardson – chaser/keeper
Emelyne Gambier – chaser
Akash Singh – chaser/seeker
Marie Carames – chaser
Nick England – chaser
Chloe Beasley – beater
Diogo Santos Ganga – chaser/seeker
Luciano Cicu – keeper/seeker
Henry Ingall – beater
Tony Semkov – chaser
The team are all training hard right now, even those not heading to Southern. It’ll be a great weekend however we place, and everyone’s put a lot of work in to get up to speed in time!
A special shout out has to go to Peter, our Social Media sec, as he’ll not only be playing for us at Southern, but he’ll be snitching in other games too. Whether he comes back alive or not is up for debate, but my money’s on no.
