The U15 Hockey squad travelled to Uttoxeter today to play their match against Thomas Alleynes. It was a bright but bitterly cold day, the team spirit was high and they were really up for their game.
We arrived in plenty of time and were able to access the pitch to begin our warm up.You can only imagine the disappointment, when the game was pulled from under us due to an unplayable pitch!
What else would you expect from team chauffeur, Mrs Fairclough, team coach, Mrs Bennett, team physio, Nursie Bettson-Burdett and team supporter extraordinaire, Mrs Nowell? Take the team for a treat of course! Five minutes later we had taken over Frankie and Benny`s, eating ice cream and filling ourselves with as many “E”numbers as possible. This was the only consolation for the girls and it certainly aided the Christmas song fest on the way home in the minibus!
Never mind girls, here`s to next week!
