Guildford make shaky start in the NVL and Cup Competitions ...

Posted by Mike Richardson on 26 October 2021

The Men's NVL team had a disappointing start to the regular NVL season last Sunday when they travelled to Suffolk to take on Newmarket.

Having been knocked out by Newmarket in the 2nd round of the NVL Cup the hosts continued their fine form against Guildford International by running out winners 3-0 (25-16, 25-18, 25-21). This leaves the side looking to quickly get back to winning way when they host Milton Keynes at the Ashcombe Volleyball Centre on the 6th November.

The season started more brightly back on the 25th September when  team put in a strong winning performance in the 1st round of the Volleyball England Knock-Out Cup. They saw off Spelthorne 3-0 (27-25, 25-17, 25-18) at the Ashcombe Volleyball Centre which saw them coming back from 19-10 down to win the 1st set. They then went on to play divisional-rivals Newmarket in the 2nd round at the Ashcombe Volleyball Centre on the 9th October.

However, the side lost in 0-3 (18-25, 18-25, 13-25) despite a great performance from departing outside hitter Ondrej Vlcek.  Having been knocked out at this stage of the competition the side will now be entered in the VE Shield Competition with a first round fixture to be played in mid-November.

More details about this fixture will follow.
