Welcome to our first weekly newsletter!
Training this Wednesday will be with Coaches Ciara and Amy - with Coach Josh there to support. We'll be working on Creating Space with Amy, and Staying Compact with Ciara. Ahead of Wednesday, try to watch a couple of sets of football highlights and work out:
• What formation the teams are playing in possession
• What formation the teams are playing out of possession
7.30 arrival as usual. Remember it's astros only on the training pitch.
First fixture of the new year! Be sure to come out and support if you aren't playing.
