U17's vs U16's Scratch Match
The U17's and U16's played in a scratch match at Rothwell Park yesterday morning.
Great support turned up to watch the boys have their first real hit out for the year, and the signs were very promising.
They were told it was 2 x 20 min halves, but the coaches sprung a surprise on them at the end of the 2nd half and sent them back out for another 20 minute slog, in quite warm conditions.
Both teams played the game hard but in the right spirit of the game. Their endeavour to win the contested ball was very encouraging, especially for the U16's who were playing against older and bigger bodies.
Both teams showed flashes of brilliance and great team work which is a credit to their Coaching staff.
Great game guys. We can't wait to see what you can achieve for the season ahead.
Thank you to all the volunteers that helped out on the day, and a special thanks to senior player Pete Furness who turned up to watch, but then found himself out in the middle umpiring. Thanks Pete.
