Finally, after another long break from football owing to the second lockdown of 2020, action got underway again for the smurfs.
With the rain pelting diagonally in ice winds at 09:00, we would have forgiven many for perhaps staying in bed, but the smurfs turned out in good numbers to take part in the first training session back.
New coach Ben Griffiths partnered with Alex Harrison to take the U9s and 10s, and then it was the turn of Shane, Damian and Leon to put the 11s and 12s through their paces. Last up were the teenagers (thought it best to give them a lie in…), turning up in usual fashion without appropriate Lansdown weather gear and they managed a near 2 hours with Phil, Paul and Alex.
It was great to see everyone back despite the challenging weather conditions! Well done to all those who took part.
