Kent U13 and U17 win Gold at the 2018 Inter-Area

The best players in the under-13 and under-17 age group represented their regions in the 2018 Youth Inter-Area competition on Saturday (20 January) at Harrow Leisure Centre.

The Inter-Area is a regional competition one level down from the National squads.

Kent continued to dominate with both their U13 and U17 teams finishing top of the table to take home the gold medals.

In the U13 age group Kent scored in the dying seconds of their final match against London to secure the gold medal. The result meant that London would take home the silver medal.

The only team to stop Kent U13s performing a clean sweep was Cambridge who beat the champions 4-5 earlier in the afternoon. Cambridge who impressed with some great team performances eventually finished in third place.
