So the season starts and after 19 months of not playing in leagues, the Youths take the court once more and they play their first ever senior league fixture in BDNL at Wormley Playing Fields . Due to a couple of COVID cases, the senior players helped out, giving confidence and guidance to the younger players, so thanks go to Beth Foster, Lucy Hoskin and Andrea Kinninmonth.
The team settled after a few minutes and gained confidence throughout the game. The skills and techniques learnt during the training sessions is beginning to show in the games, with some great changes of direction when bringing the ball down court, good shooting holds in the circle and a practiced goal-line throw-in all evident. The players did themselves proud, playing with determination and some controlled passing at times. The initial nerves disappeared and the performance of the team improved as they progressed further into the game.
A great start to the season for the Youths with some great play evident.
