After a promising finish to last season, excitement was high for the start of the new season at Tendring. With the squad only being together for 2 sessions, a first game, home fixture against National Cup winners, Polonia Sideout London was going to be a very tough challenge. A strong team that will be looking to win the league no doubt after a very successful season last year.

Report by Bogdan Stanciu

First game of the season was quite a tough game for us, New Forest has proved to be a very organised and capable team and I think if they keep performing like that they will have a good season ahead.

St Albans 1 - 3 Tendring

19-25, 22-25, 25-21, 15-25

Report by Stuart Dove

A new look Tendring team travelled to St Albans for their first competitive game of the season in the first round of the National Cup. A strong Tendring squad were keen to start the season with win and on paper the division one side would have too much firepower for their division 3 opponents. This proved to be the case during the first set and a solid Tendring passing unit created good opportunities for new setter Sullivan to spread the play. Tendring never really got out of 1st gear but they were able to comfortably take the set 25:18.
