Xmas Run in

Several things to report....

1. This Sunday (15th) the match is away at Swansea Uplands. Teamer invites have been sent from the Matrix rotation. There is an early kick off. And we are meeting at the Swansea Uplands new pitches (bottom pitch near the clubhouse of Swansea Uplands RFC) at 9:45 prompt.

2. NEXT Sunday (22nd Dec) we have hired St Helens for our Xmas match. We have New Dock Stars coming to play, followed by a proper buffet at the Swansea Club. The kick off time is not quite confirmed, but will be after the u14s play, so about 11:30. The buffet has been organised at a considerably discounted price of £5per person (Thanks Jill!). Food is for both parents and players, so please bring the money along this Sunday, or at Friday training next week. I am assuming that it is 1 parent per player (so £10 due). If more than one parent will be coming, please TEXT MIKE to confirm (07846334962). 

3. TRAINING. Is not ideal on a Wednesday. It has also remained almost totally dry through Nov and Dec when the whole point was to hire astroturf as the only option of training when it got cancelled at underhill! But we are nearly through the period anyway. After Xmas we have only 2 more Wednesday sessions. If it stays dry we won't bother with these and stick to Fridays at the park every week in Jan. If the rains do come and Friday cancellations are on the cards we will use the Wednesdays as an emergency.

4. Matrix. After Xmas we will revise the matrix. We will continue to strive for equal game times, but it is rather a jigsaw puzzle at the moment. Trying different positions is also one of our philosophies, but because of the jigsaw there has been too much moving around on a match day. So we will look to gradually build a system with more continuity in positions for the boys.
