On Saturday 26th June we held out Club Awards Day after a training session devoted to mini matches within the Club. Awards were presented by Club President Jan Kiddle, and we hope the girls enjoyed the day with us. We have some matches still to come over the summer, but Awards brought to a close this season's training.
It has been an eventful season with lockdowns, semi-openings, masks and thermometers to the fore! Our Committee ( all volunteers) rose to the challenge and when we were training have been out in all weathers with the temperature guns and attendance sheets. Probably the 'highlight' of Registration was working the Registration Table in a rainstorm with a puddle threatening to lift the table off off like a boat going out to sea, and cars getting mired in the mud of the parking field. We coped!
Regretfully, we said goodbye to our Head Coaches Nicky Williams and Eleanor Fox who steered training very successfully through the pandemic, helping us ensure compliance with the Covid-19 regulations on the field. Both our Head Coaches were founder members of the Club, and their legacy to us is woven firmly in the fabric of how we operate. We will miss them, and I think also they will miss us too! Nicky has been with the Club in some way ( three years as Head Coach) or another since she started as a player with us. Now we welcome our new Head Coach Schyler Neale, who will head up the Club coaching team as a whole and will also maintain her position as Coach to our First Team.
This hasn't been the easiest of years, but in many ways it will stand-out as the year we coped against the odds. We can't thank our members and their parents for their commitment to training, matches and our Zoom training sessions. We can't wait to welcome you back to Season 2021-22!
