Bury St Edmunds Tchoukball Club’s first and second teams were back in action this weekend in the National League.

The first team, Bury Kings, came away with two vital wins against Guildford Inferno and Portsmouth.

In the first match, the Kings came from behind after a poor start to rescue all of the points against last year’s runners up, Guildford Inferno.

Particular praise must be given to the youngest members of the squad, Sam Nicholson, 17, and Jordan Farrelly, 19, who performed admirably under pressure in the top-of-the-table clash.

The second team, Bury Saints, were brave in defeat in their games, pushing second -placed Southampton Stags and sixth-placed Portsmouth hard in what were described as their best performances of the season.

Royal Anglian Ryan Thompson had his best game of the season against Southampton, pulling off some remarkable catches in what was his final tournament before he begins an eight-month tour of Afghanistan.

Bury Tchoukball Club would like to wish him all the best and thank him for his efforts this season.
