Ladies Reds v Tamworth 4ths Saturday 22ndSeptember
A little explanation needed! Wats 4th and 5th ladies are in the same division and so a management decision was taken to select 2 teams of comparable ability to try to support young/new players coming through and spread experience players. These would be renamed in the club as Wats Blue taking the 4ths fixtures and Wats Reds taking the 5ths fixtures.
Wats Reds travelled to Tamworth for a 1 o’clock start with a newly formed team of 11 players Lizzie taking the helm as captain. It was a first-time league match for 2 youngsters and 1 back to hockey player. Everyone was keen to make a good start, which we did. It took most of the first half to settle into everyone’s style of play fitness and ability, but everyone was working hard. At half time the score was 0-0 very positive but we felt we could do better. Tamworth scored but we continued to work hard to put into practice the half time team talk and it paid off. As a result of a penalty corner, Sue passed the ball from the edge of the ‘D’ and Shobna scored. A good, positive result for our first outing.
