Regional Octopush Championships- November 2011
This event was held in Newport in South Wales and Rochdale were represented by Kal Torson playing for North Region Under 13s and Matthew Rogan playing for the North Region under 16s.
It was Kal’s first match and tournament; he played on a team with a lot of players from Batley and Xarifa and succeeded in winning a gold medal.
Matthew also played well with players from Xarifa, against players who were generally bigger than him, but gained valuable experience of competition.
All players also got a t-shirt and benefited from playing competitive matches against other teams and players that they didn’t know.
