Phoenix entered the EKA Cup this year. We were given a 1st round draw against Oxford Isis and Highbury 2. This was played on Halloween at Newmarket Leisure Centre. Unfortunately due to injuries Isis were unable to field a team and the fixture was rearranged to a straight knock out between Phoenix and Highbury 2.
This match was competitive throughout but Phoenix were always in control after establishing a lead after some tight but unproductive early exchanges. It took a free pass to get the scoring going but after that there was steady progress through the match and Phoenix eventually ran out 11-5 winners.
As a reward for this Phoenix have been given a good draw in the second round. Another home draw sees us entertain Croydon 1, who are currently 4th in the London regional League. This will be a good challenge and a great chance to get into the 3rd round! This match will be played at CRC on the 19th of December starting at 1100.
Come On You Greens!
