Mainly seniors games this weekend, and we had mixed fortunes. Losses for WY Seniors and for Prem, but wins for Northern and Senior Regional. In terms of league tables at this early point in the season, we are 2nd in WY Senior and Regional (on goal difference), top in Northern, and near the bottom in Prem. Our junior teams are all near the top! Hats off to our U12s who beat a local U14 side in a friendly, had a great game and lots of learning.
Back to full schedule next weekend! U12A & U12C have Games, and in each of U14s and U16s our As play our Bs! It's a busy seniors weekend, with a Saturday fixture vs Leeds Lightning, then Prem, Northern and Regional fixtures on Sunday. Teams likely to be issued Wednesday.
For those athletes playing senior games, please keep a record of quarters played and be aware of the rules so that you make coaches aware if you are not eligible for other teams because you have played too many quarters.
Info about training during the week has gone out from team managers, because we have no Gateways facility this week! I am delighted to say that Marion Lofthouse will be covering senior training on 15&22 November, a brilliant opportunity to learn from a very experienced coach!
Great to see some more players retuning from injury this weekend, not great that we sustained more injuries this weekend! Fingers crossed to everyone for a speedy recovery. Take advice, share information and keep your coach/team manager posted.
Great to see so many of our players appearing in Rhinos fixtures over the weekend, and indeed our coaches too!! Keeley is preparing the roll of honour for the season, so watch this space for that! Good luck to those taking their umpiring assessment! Let us know if anyone wants to volunteer for anything else, we still need a social secretary!
