In the first match of the season, the players, under the guidance of Piotr Graban, beat Malory Eagles London 3-0. The victory gave the English Champions three points for their hard work. The team defeated Malory Eagles quite comfortably (25:19, 25:19, 25:17). The match took place in the home venue of Brentford Fountain Leisure Centre in front of the faithful fans. It was great to see so many spectators at the first match of the season.
– I think that the game was of a high standard. Both teams managed their parts of the game well. The match was more or less level until the 16 point region in the first set, after which our team maintained a better level of concentration and quality of play. The opponents couldn’t cope with the pressure and succumbed to the higher quality of IBB Polonia London. The same scenario was evident in the second and third sets where we played hard for each point. Each player carried out their fair share of work, and the fans encouraged them vociferously! They are warmly invited back to the next match. – said coach Piotr Graban.
– It was great to get back to watching volleyball. The entire official Fan Club was looking forward to the first match. It’s great to see that we have attracted new spectators. We want to develop still further and continue supporting in other ways. It’s good to see that IBB Polonia London is the leader in terms of organisation as well as sport in the English League. We aspire to continue to be the leaders in volleyball supporters in the UK. The opponents also had some support during the match and their cheering motivated us even further during the match. – said President of the official IBB Polonia London Fan Club.
The next match will take place on the 1st October 2016 at the home venue of Brentford Fountain Leisure Centre, Brentford at 3pm. The match will be against the team of Wessex Volleyball Club.
