The Ladies 3s rocked up to the Tring International Sports Center filled with enthusiasm and energy for the oncoming game... However, we were under no illusions that this would be an easy game; Rickmansworth was a notoriously strong team and despite Berko being higher in the league our usual superb performance had been somewhat erratic in the past when playing Ricky!

It was a cold and bitter morning with heavy gusts of winds on the hockey pitch at Luton.

The fire in our bellies had been severely reduced to embers by the revelation of this Saturday’s availability. We had been hit hard by the sudden appearance of half term, springing upon us like a coiled Tiger ready to take down its prey!

Helen's thorough warm-up was exactly what we needed on such a dismal freezing afternoon, focussing our anticipation and eagerness for a win!

The ladies 3's featured in an observed lesson at Bridgewater Primary School this week in the build up to their match at Tring International Sports Arena. Swift Class (6 and 7 year old) and Head Teacher, Mrs Doodson were treated to a selection of videoed interviews with the famous team as they explained the meaning or the New National Curriculum Year 2 grammar.
