HORNDEAN put on a good show despite losing in straight sets to powerhouses Malory Eagles (London) in the National Cup.

National League third division side Horndean can take plenty of positives from their showing against England’s most successful men’s volleyball club.

They started superbly at Highbury College, rocking their elite league (Super 8) visitors.

But, with the set in the balance, Malory head coach Jefferson Williams made changes to ensure his side took it 25-19.

Malory then restricted Horndean playmaker Ian Towers and locked out out-side hitters Maciej Kubis and Festus Nfor as they won the second set 25-13 and the third 25-11.

Opposite spiker Ruonan Yang and Towers were Horndean’s best players.

Towers said: ‘We are divisions apart but it was hard to tell the difference in the first set, which we nearly snatched.

‘We are now looking forward to putting the lesson learned from the National Cup into practice, to try and win the League.’

Horndean travel to Dartford on Sunday in National League division three.
