Canterbury player coach Kwan Browne targets upset at Maxifuel Super Sixes National Indoor Championships
by Alex Hoad
Kwan Browne says Canterbury can
spring a surprise at the National Indoor Championships at Wembley
Arena on Sunday afternoon.
The city club superbly topped the table in the Maxifuel Super
Sixes group stage and now face reigning champions East Grinstead in
the last-four with a place in the final against Beeston or Reading
later the same day at stake.
Player-coach Kwan Browne (pictured)
said: "The club has enjoyed success a long time ago but we have got
back to this point because of hard work and extra training
"It should be a great occasion with
a lot of supporters travelling up there."
East Grinstead’s squad is full of
TeamGB Olympians, including Kent’s own Ashley Jackson, one of the
world’s top finishers, and Browne admitted: "East Grinstead have
nine senior internationals and six Olympians whereas we are a group
of local lads but that gives us an edge.
"They have probably got too many
quality players and with so many big names they might tend to dwell
on the ball a bit longer, which suits the way we play.
"We will just concentrate on our
game and won’t change the way we play because of who we’re
"We have Ben Allberry who scored 22
goals in the league and in Devohn Teixeria we have a player who
comes up with more steals than anyone."
