U9 Emerging Players Festival
By Daniel Tasker
Our well supported U9 team travelled to Farnborough and played very well! Thanks to all for the support and organisation before and during the day that made it so. The inclusion of more team members in each attack and defence play was excellent to see. Despite winning each of their matches the team were edged out of the year group award scored on TREDS values. There was certainly a continuation of the development shown at last weeks away fixture and I am proud of the effort they all made for one another. We have a few weeks to work some more before our next challenging fixture and it was great to see progress towards being able to field two teams at future fixtures. Alexander and Skyler deserved their recognition for their efforts in all aspects of the game, particularly their tackling commitment, defensive positioning and running angles...well done!
