The junior Bluefins team played in their first match at the aquadrome against a Strong Salisbury team including a couple of 15 year olds.

The young Bluefins side of:

Will Blakeley, Matthew Hodgkin, Josh Lay, Alex Millar, Matthew Harding, Jake Day, Ella Hollies, Gareth Wintle, Zoe Day, Dan Hutton, Jack Howells, Keeran Howells, Matthew Girle Gina Lay, Amy Stringer, Richard Fry, Jake Melhuish, Sam Taylor

The Bluefins team started well with a goal from Alex Millar before Salisbury hit back with a couple before Will Blakeley levelled the scores at 2-2 at the end of the first quarter. The Bluefins were ensuring everyone had a game so swapped in the younger players at the start of the second quarter which allowed Salisbury to pull into a 5-2 lead halftime lead. For the start of the third quarter Bluefins changed to their starting line up and managed to pull back the scores to 5-5 with goals from Josh Lay, Matthew Hodgkin (2) with Bluefins keeper Richard Fry pulling off a string of magnificent saves to keep Bluefins in the game. For the last quarter with the Bluefins starting line up starting to tire once again the younger players got pool time and whilst they competed well a lack of experienced showed allowing Salisbury team to pull a head and win the match 8-5. A great performance by the Bluefins side.

A special note of thanks to Amy Stringer, Gina Lay and Jake Meluish who Volunteered to play for Salisbury how turned up with only 6 players without these 3 the match wouldn't have gone a head.
