Looking back and forward...

I'll leave Joe to review today's game in detail - but if you checkout the Threlfall Archive (see right) you can already catch up on some pictures of major events - including "blow by blow" coverage of Hayley's injury (1, 2, and 3 - picture 2 in particular might require some sort of "advisory notice".)

In the end it was a very close game - perhaps our policy of rolling players on and off in order to give everyone game time disrupted the "shape" of the team which might have made the difference? Who knows - but the most important thing in this club is that everyone who is available to play can play. Participation comes first - especially in "friendly" fixtures like this - and long may it remain so. Its the experience that matters - you'll remember taking part in games like this - this tackle, that run - long after the result has been forgotten.

But before ending on today I must say a big "thank you" to those U17s who helped out with the U14s early on. Its getting very tough to get U14 games at the minute (though we've hopefully got at least one extra game for them line up for next month - just waiting final confirmation) so any playing experience they can get is important, especially with county etc. next week.

And so on to next week:
  • For some - if they are fit! - a challenging day at Grove in Oxfordshire playing for the county against Oxfordshire, Essex, and Middlesex (12.30 start - leave Letchworth c9.30);
  • For others a trip down to the lush pastures of OAs (St Albans) to seek a place in the Herts Barbarians U17 team for the inter-county tournament on 3rd December (1.30 start);
  • And for the rest ... a weekend off (!?). Hmmmmm... Perhaps Joe can come up with some personal fitness drills for anyone planning to relax at home next Sunday?
