Welcome to the Thunderdome!!
Our second televised game of the season sees us take on the Welsh side of Celtic Dragons. The aim this year for the side and new appointed coach Trisha seems to be the World Championships out in Sydney this summer. Yet to win a game this season, I do feel that the loss of key players Timmy Cato to Yorkshire jets and Kyra Jones to Team Bath has heavily affected their side and their style of players, which will take some adjusting to. I am however, a big fan of the youngsters that are being exposed and getting some valuable learning experience out on court.
I welcome our NPL players and coaches to the court tonight. This will be a tough game for our youngsters having been defeated by this side in November in the pre-season tournament. They demonstrated very clinical passing, which made winning ball off this side very difficult so everyone will have to be on task in this game.
Our last two home games before we start out on the away leg of our season, keep the support coming and vocal. #Letsgothunder
