Fantastic weather for training, dry, sunny and warm – I was even contemplating wearing shorts to training.
Good numbers at training with 16 players. The more players we get to training usually means more parents which means more assistance for Steve and I (that’s a good thing).
Something I’ve noticed is that the kids seem to be enjoying training which motivates me to lift my game and want to deliver a good training session.
I was a bit sad to hear from Amelie’s mum that Amelie had lost a bit of interest in football and had decided to sit out the remainder of the season. Amelie’s mum wanted to emphasize that everyone had treated Amelie well and she had enjoyed herself (and it had nothing to do with the poor coaching) and wished the team all the best for the remainder of the season. In my opinion Amelie had done so well and was getting better and better all the time. She had done a great job as the only girl fitting into a team full of boys and adapting to a sport she had never played before. I wish Amelie all the best and who knows she may come back next season.
