The winter sporting season is quickly drawing to a close, but our younger athletes are still in action.
As the season is beginning to draw to a close, the U14C team played their penultimate fixture against Wetherby’s B team.
With a considerably larger squad than usual, the team had plenty of energy, and fatigue would not be a concern. The game began, and as a result of the uneven and bobbly surface, both teams took some wild, uncontrolled touches.
