WKU Squad Report
EKF National Championships 29-30 March 2014

WKU Squad Coaches in attendance – Darren Haynes, Rory Daniels, David McLeod and Chris Summers.

This was one of the biggest ever WKU squads entering this championship. We had a lot of injuries in the build up to the competition with a few having to withdraw from competing.

The first day saw Gemma Cross win Silver in the Kata and our girls’ team (Chloe, Nicole, and Chloe) in the 12y-13y took the Bronze position. Well done girls – that gave us an excellent start to the competition.

Mitchell Wyatt-Sugg, Sean Deady and Nabeel Uddin secured Bronze in the boys 14 & 15 yrs Team Kumite.

Sunday was a very demanding day for the WKU Coaches and again the Squad produced some encouraging performances.

Gemma Cross – GOLD – 16y-17y Kumite
Sophie Ward – BRONZE – 14y-15y Kumite
Mitchell Wyatt-Sugg – GOLD – 14y-15y Kumite
Charlie Smith – GOLD – 16y-17y Kumite

There was a brilliant performance from our long awaited WKU Ladies Team. Well done Hollly Carey, Danni Lee and Rachel Taylor.

And … for the sixth time in a row, our Men’s Team won Gold.
