Teenager part of winning GB frisbee squad
Published 31/08/14



A TEENAGER from Sonning Common was part of the Great Britain frisbee squad that won the under-17s title at the 2014 World Ultimate Club Championships.

Connor Limbrick, 15, of Ashford Avenue, was one of 21 members of the squad to compete at the championships in Lecco, Italy.

They defeated Austria 10-6 in the final match, which lasted just under two hours.

Connor, a pupil at Chiltern Edge School in Sonning Common, said: “I really enjoyed it. Everyone was really friendly.”

His mother, Mandy Butler-Limbrick, said: “It was very difficult to keep in communication with him because he was out playing all day.

“I didn’t hear anything for seven or eight days and then I got a call saying ‘we’re in the final, speak to you tomorrow’ and then another one saying he had won. I was very proud.”

Connor’s interest in frisbee was sparked when Reading Ultimate Frisbee gave a taster session at Club SC, the village youth club where he is a member.

He trains with the squad in Aylesford School in Warwick and also plays for Caversham Football Club and Reading Abbey Rugby Football Club as well as playing cricket for his school.

His 14-year-old brother, Lewis, has now taken up the sport and has started his own frisbee club at school which he runs with friend Jordan Butler, 15, as part of his GCSE PE curriculum.

Mrs Butler-Limbrick said: “A lot of kids around here are interested in frisbee now.”
