In front of a large crowd both teams were justifiably nervous at times but the standard of volleyball was a thing to behold as momentum swung back and forth until G&ME claiming victory by that narrowest of margins . Giants 24 - 25 G&ME. A gripping end to what was a fantastic advertisement for junior volleyball in London. A massive well done to all our Giants girls and coach Orhan Çolak.
Twelve teams from across the capital had played their way through pool groups and then on to position play offs. They were drawn from hosts, Richmond, Polonia Academy and Willesden, All appear to have enjoyed the day, benefitted from the competition and are looking forward to the next leg. "Giants too were delighted," Çisel Ormancı said afterwards. "It’s a great achievement considering Giants U15 girls have only played together as a team for less than a year.”
