The Bromley Bandits 7s squad were in action over last summer with the COVID restrictions now having eased. The team participated in 4 tournaments (Chiswick, Worthing, Wimbledon & Summer Social) with 2 teams playing at Summer Social. We’ve had around 35 players playing throughout the tournaments from which we have welcomed the Academy boys into the seniors and the University Students back from University – was great to see the strength coming through the junior set-up.
We managed to come away with silverware at 2 out of the 4 tournaments – winning the Bowl at the Social Tournament at Chiswick (in memory of Matt Hart) and the Plate at the Social Tournament at Summer Social (Bromley Bashas – 1).
We had 3 tournaments where we topped the group in the group stages but unfortunately had narrow defeats in the Cup Semi-Finals to lose out on Silverware for Wimbledon, Worthing, and Summer Social (Bromley Bandits – 2).
Next season we’ll be changing the name of the 7s squad from the Bromley Bandits to Bromley Bashas in memory of Matt Hart (Basha to those who knew him) who was meant to participate in some of the tournaments this year, and sadly passed away earlier this year from a mental health illness. From this change, we are hoping to make initial steps to creating more awareness to Mental Health and making sure the players are more comfortable to say when they are not ok.
