Southend Junior Players Win Essex schools competition

Howard Grant took time away from normal Southend Junior Coaching duties, to coach members of his Hullbridge Teams in the Essex Schools Team competition. Schools from all over the county converged on Batts in Harlow on the 4th Oct, to play the right to represent Essex in the National Schools Team Event, Howard had many of his juniors taking part on the day, and 3 of them who all come from the same school The Eastwood Academy, triumphed in the under 16 boys event, Sidney Dorn, Dan Payne and Hullbridge newcomer Harry Harwood all took the Essex trophy along with Billy Praim-Singh.
It was good to see so many Southend League players taking part, proving how strong we are, at producing some of the best Juniors in Essex, now comes a bit more hard work from Howard, as he has to prepare the boys for their next round of matches against the English Schools finest Table Tennis players, Good luck "H" and well played lads.
