Looking back on the first County Day

I think the main thing to come out of the first county day of the new season is.... there is still plenty of time for new people to come along and join in!

For some reason there was only about 25 U18s at the session, down a fair bit on last season, so I gather from those who took part that at the moment they will be sticking to that group and not formally selecting yet - so if you were away or injured you have not missed your chance.

The U15s was not a trial so there is also time for other to join in - but they probably had as many girls as the U18s did - maybe more. Laura was our sole representative, towered over a bit by some seriously big players from other teams (mostly a couple of years older, it has to be said). I think its clear - if this was representative of players in other clubs - that the U15 band will be a very different animal to the U14 band last year!

The new U12 age band also worked well. 14 girls took part, which was a good number, and half of them had not played contact before (they have now!). Again, though, there is room for more.

Next County Day is 30th September at Welwyn, after which I think they will be looking to fixtures on future county dates.
