UCLan Spinners Qualify For Nationals

By Karan Gadhia – Sports Editor


The UCLan Spinners mixed 1st team have qualified for nationals after a fantastic performance at the regional qualifiers.

The Spinners 1st team played 10 games across the weekend at the STFSC and lost just once to finish second overall.

The result means that they will travel to Wolverhampton on the weekend of the 26th and 27th of November for the nationals.

The 2nd team also did very well and beat every other second team that they played to finish 7th overall which places them as the best second team in the region.

Club captain, Ryan Gibson said: “We had no expectations coming into the tournament because a lot of our 1st team from last year had graduated and in the week leading up to the tournament we sustained a lot of injuries to our team meaning we weren’t 100%.

“It feels genuinely amazing to finish second and qualify for nationals despite the setbacks.

“We would also like to say thank you to the Sir Tom Finney Sports Centre for hosting the tournament.”
