Oakham u15a vs Bedford Modern Won 10-1

On the week we had a thoroughly beneficial pre-season trip to Nottingham we had a practice match vs BMS on the lower Astro. We had the game-plan of getting used to playing all together again, welcoming into the team a new player or two and enjoying the match. The first half was very impressive and we played some very exciting attacking Hockey scoring 9 goals!

The second half was always going to be less destructive in terms of goals but the girls were given new roles and differing tasks in order to challenge ourselves. Some players were able to try their hand in newer positions and it was beneficial to see the girls play slightly out of their comfort zones. This was a level half and the game finished 10-1 to us.

The goals were shared around with 7 different scorers which from a coaching perspective was very encouraging as was some of the link up play. Above all that the girls worked very hard and the three days spent training before the term even started will hopefully be invaluable for our season. WD1
