Weather washes out first week of season

raingrass 425x230

The poor weather throughout most of April has continued into May and disrupted the start of the 2012 season.

All adult pre-season games were called off and the first week of league games on Saturday 5th May were also abandoned. Junior games also suffered a similar fate last week with u11, u13 and u17 games abandoned. This week still looks uncertain.

Training however continues to take place as normal regardless of the weather. Academy ages u10/u11/u12 (school years 4-7) on a Monday, and u13/u15 (school years 8-10) on a Tuesday, will train every week, rain or shine. In poor weather the focus will be a mix of physical fitness, and then inside for tactical and match awareness sessions.

Please remember to dress appropriately with spikes, jumpers and waterproof tops if cold and wet.
