Well done to our current members who are playing in their respective SuperLeague franchises, Bath, Wasps and Team North, with a busy Easter weekend of fixtures! Good luck also to our athletes featuring in Loughborough U21 NPL squad. I hope that people are managing to watch some SuperLeague, even though Yorkshire no longer has a franchise. Loughborough, Team North and Manchester are all reasonably accessible and reasonably priced tickets.
Our U14A and 16 squads qualified for Nationals in style last weekend, both unbeaten in this regional campaign so clear league winners and both with very very impressive goal differences. U16 preparation is in the final stages, as they go off to Essex on 28 April. U14 have a bit longer to prepare with their competition at the end of May. Other age groups are entering tournaments, so keep in touch through social media! Good luck to everyone!
We will also be wishing our Premier League Squad best wishes soon as they head to playoffs at the beginning of May!
We have collected deposits for our Australia trip, and are in the process of confirming the booking. We have a Garden Party planned for those attending so that people can get to know each other well in advance of the trip! Exciting times!
We have 3 athletes attending England Camp next week, Natalia K, Georgia P and Laura K (all from U16). Good luck to them! Our younger athletes have been attending camps and regional playdays, or been away on school tours!

Age group admin will keep you posted about training dates, and I will be in touch soon with everyone about trials and summer opportunities! Thanks again to all the age group admin help, the club couldn’t run without you! And a special mention to Becky Harris who has sorted all our Premier fixtures this season, which is quite an onerous task!
It continues to be busy!
