It meant that all the players were able to play in all the matches
Matches were 4 quarters of 5 minutes so it was hard going especially for the less experienced players.The players tried hard and kept smiling even when it was raining & they were not winning. The players & their play improved throughout the day with some very good spells of determined attacking & defending teamwork.Well done to the Gold team for their fighting spirit.
