MSMAS Medal success at Sussex County Trials...

Despite being one of the smallest entries ever made by The Mid Sussex Martial Arts School at the BJA Sussex County Trials, our 19 Players managed to collect no fewer than 15 Medals between them


2 Golds, 7 Silvers & 6 Bronze !! 

Although set against much larger Clubs from within Sussex, fielding many more Players in each Category, the Mid Sussex Members still managed another 80% medal success rate from their Players from both ends of the Judo training spectrum, Black Belts to our newest Novice Juniors !

Full Results:

Jon Griffiths ~ Gold ~ Mens Over 100Kgs
Chris Sharp ~ Silver ~ Men Over 100Kgs
Emyr Sion ~ Silver ~ Men Under 81 Kgs
Tom Wood ~ Bronze ~ Men Under 66 Kgs
Pat McBride ~ Bronze ~ Men Under 66 Kgs
Pat Davies ~ Bronze ~ Men Under 66 Kgs
Sue Buckley ~ Bronze ~ Ladies U63 Kgs
Beth Rees ~ Bronze ~ Ladies U57 Kgs
Luke Fairhead ~ Silver ~ Boys Over 73 Kgs
William Price ~ Silver ~ Boys Under 60 Kgs
Gus O'Grady ~ Bronze ~ Boys Under 55 Kgs
Kieran Raftery ~ Silver ~ Boys Under 50 Kgs
Otto Friedman ~ Silver ~ Boys Under 46 Kgs
Jonny Shanahan ~ Silver ~ Boys Under 38 Kgs
Onna O'Grady ~ Gold ~ Girls Under 36 Kgs

Considering we decided this year to field a much smaller Junior Team of just 8, including some of our Novice Red Belts, this was an awesome result !! Jonny & Otto, two of those Red Belts were outstanding, each taking Silver in their respective weight Categories against much more experienced Players. Our 'older hand' Juniors like Kieran, Will Price & Luke all took Silver, with Gus fighting through a very large Group indeed to take a Bronze.
Our Seniors also took a Gold, 2 Silver & 5 Bronze amongst them.
A day of quality rather than quantity !!
