Yet three more new faces as the “possible squad” reaches a massive 21 children!!! A big Eccles welcome to Darcy, Thomas and Tyler.
I only have one observation this week … I think the kids were focussed on the following Halloween party rather than the training and I have never scolded as much in my life (errrm sorry, lying there I do live with Harry!)
In the days session we tried to keep everyone moving as much as possible building on the offloading/pop passing seen in the previous weeks match. We also attempted the impossible, three lines of children intermingled with two coaches performing the perfect defensive ballet. FAILED miserably!
The session ending game was also a messy affair, with only a breakaway try from Joel and two late full length try scoring runs from Zac of any note.
The star of the week this week is Zac for his two excellent tries in the game plus his attitude during training was exemplary. Well done Zac.
Next Sunday, we are away at Blackburn in a tri game including Vale as the third team. Please be aware that parking at Blackburn is at a premium especially with the expected number of players/parents. I have also spoken to the coach at Blackburn and there should be no charge for parking. The pitches are also on the side of the moors and quite exposed, please ensure that the kids have warm clothing as we may be playing (the official rules) 3 x 4-a-side games rather than trying to get all playing at once

And finally, I will take my bow now for winning the Eccles Halloween pumpkin competition, I thank you!
