Squad of 12 at the start struggle against opposition's squad of 21.
The Under 14 boys played as well as they could against Wigan last Sunday down at Hough End.
This is a close knit team with some talented players. But whereas a few seasons ago this fixture would have been close the team is now losing these matches regularly. The reason for this: we just don’t have enough players.
We turned up with 12 players. They turned up with a squad of 21. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see where this game was going and if you don’t have a full team , not only are you deprived of giving some of your players a brief rest, but the opposition is always putting on fresh legs against you.
The good news is, if you’re reading this and have an under 14 son ( year 9) looking to get some game time, he’ll be welcome with open arms. Training , as always, down at Hough End every Wednesday evening at 7 pm.
